Bought used dies, and I did not clean them. Lots of crud. I would not think that would be enough to screw it up this bad, but all is well, so I have to assume that was it.

Chambers just fine, within spec, metal dental pick checked.

Yep, user error.

Thanks all.

Glad you solved the problem.

Before I got to this page and see that you figured it out I was going to ask if you were applying lube to the inside of the neck as well. That could cause the expander to stick and destroy your brass.

So, I finally started playing with my annealer. This pic is the first piece I did.

Tempilaq 750 on the neck.

Tempilaq 450 just below the neck.

The 750 melted and the 450 stayed gray.

But the actual rainbow from the annealing process was not as obvious as I have seen on factory ammo.

How does the pic look to you guys?
