Check the head right in front of the belt. Do you see a shinny ring there? If you do, that is a case head getting ready to seperate. Belted cases are notorious for sloppy chambers. Because of that there are two ways to resize and insure longer life. #1 neck size and #2 is particial FL size. By doing either you'll move the shoulder forward where you'll be close to headspacing on the shoulder rather than the belt. If you FL size each time using manufacturer directions and you have a sloppy chamber, your gonna get head seperation started long befor anything else bothers the case.

If you do have a sloppy chamber, you'll see the ring start befor much longer, I would suggest you get a neck sizer and set the FL die up to particial size. Then you neck size a few times and then FL with the particial size and return the case to where it fits your chamber. Belts can be a pain in the butt!

I pity the man that has never been loved by a dog!
