UPDATE ,,,,,, The good folks at 'Redding' returned from the SHOT SHOW this morning and a new 'sizing' die is on it's way,,,,,,,I will return the defective one today.
Customer Service you can count on ,,,,,,my first experience with 'Redding',,,,




The below image shows a 'new' 6.5 Creedmoor case run through a new(cleaned) resizing die.

The abrasions on the neck of the case is of concern,,,,,,,I have not seen this on my other sizing dies in various calibers.

Your thoughts,,,,,,,

I have seen them before from dies. I'd ask for a replacement die. Or you could try and polish them out. You shoot some and see if they cause splits early.

Could it be a lube issue?

Looks like reamer "chatter" and should not have passed quality control.
Definitely replace.

Right. Sometimes the reamer marks are around the body or neck instead of vertical chatter.
Those could cause the necks to split sooner.
I would not attempt a polish if they are new and under warranty.

Seen a New RCBS FL die do that. It went back to them for fixing. Factory defect.

Other causes-

Brass build up in the sizing die, clean die with solvent.

A case mouth was not chamfer & deburred correctly , then run into the FL die.

A mis-adjusted Forester FL die has the expander to high up in the die neck area.
