    I am new to relaoding so i got a lee 50th aniversary kit to start and some RCBS dies. I am reloading .300 wsm i ran into a problem where the case was to long from base to shoulder and chamber without alot of force. I found a redding dealer would shaved my shell holder .007". Now the casings fit but on the shoulder of the casing there are small wrinkles they arent on the body or the neck. Is this going to be a problem or should these be ok to shoot.

    They will be OK to shoot just might end up with shorter brass life. Oil dents are usually from using to much lube above the case body.

    I would try the feeler gauge method and try reseting the dies. Put a .002 gauge between the die and shellholder and tighten it down. Try the brass to see if it will chamber, if it does try a .004 and see. You may not need all .007 to be able to chamber the brass and that may reduce the "wrinkles". Watch the lube on the neck, none needed there.

    i remembered after reading the first reply that i started using the lee paste lube so i took a look inside the die and there was a significant amount at the top of the die. I wiped it all out and cleaned it. Pressed a few rounds watching to not use to much lube a problem solved. I am now using hornady one shot. Thanks for the responses

    Make sure you shake the One Shot can as you spray. That keeps the stuff mixed up good.
