I've trimmed the 2.125" brass back to 2.115", stopped using poly wads, much drier patches and a chamber mop after each shot. The combination seems to have worked to stop the case stretching. Would have been nice to know which particular step was the most effective (I'm guessing the shorter cases and no poly wads), but I did not have the luxury of time to find out since June & July are so busy with matches. Happy to take what I can get and the problem solved (for the moment).
See you in a couple of weeks at Ridgway for the regional.
