Well heck! I haven’t crushed a case this bad in years. I was sitting at my bench cranking out one loaded round after the next. Reloading is repetitive by nature and one can find themselves simply going through the motions rather than staying keenly focused. However, one should really remain totally focused on the task at hand. Failure to remain focused and recognize that you’re meeting an abnormal amount resistance will almost always result in a crushed case.
