Re. re-sizing;
My 1923 Lithgow is so tight, I have to full length re-size brass for it if used in another rifle, and turn the case in the holder 3 times and size it again.  after the normal procedure, the case still does not fit.
Factory brass no problem though.  (1954 barrel)

Interesting, albeit heady, discussion of accuracy and group sizes.   You can ignore the statistical math and still get the drift of the paper.

Try using a different set of dies. Borrow a set and try them.
