[quote="slimjim"][quote="woods"] if you subtract the diameter of the bullet, .304"-.270"=.034" which means each side would average .017" thick neck brass. [/quote]

Most dies need to be set about 1/4 turn below where it hits the shell holder so that the die "cams over" as in these RCBS instructions

Never heard of a 338 WSM AI. If you took the 300 WSM and necked it up to 338 it would have a 35* shoulder and a very low body taper already. There would be no advantage to making it an AI.

It definitely is easier to pull the bullets and reload without sizing. For instance I loaded 50 338RUM at 96 gr RL25 because in working up the load it shot good. When shooting at the range I got a l ...

You do not have to resize the necks after pulling bullets with the RCBS.

For example here is a 375 Ruger 260 gr Accubond that I needed to pull

chambered, that is all entirely possible. The operable word in your good diagram above is "Remington" (I am assuming your rifles are Remington also?). Even if your rifles are not Remingtons, then it ...

Yes, when you size your case with a Full Length die, if your die is threaded in enough to start sizing the case body (coincidentally at the pressure ring), the shoulder will be pushed upward toward th ...

Vertical stringing? Most probable cause is velocity variation.
