Hmmm..... I'd be curious to see what your once fired headspace reading is compared to that of a resized case. (I'd especially want to see how far the shoulder is being bumped?)

As for it having anything to do with the trigger...I'm at a loss as to how it would affect the strike, once the sear engagement is "broken" - on a Rem 721 (or a 722 or 700) affixed w/ a Jewel trigger.

BTW, I've never had/heard of any issues with Redding "S" (or any other Redding dies) in over 2 decades using them in several calibers.

One of those "AH-HA!" moments (breakthroughs) I had in my quest for accuracy was the result of measurements attained after purchasing an RCBS "Case Master", followed by headspace gauges. One quickly learns to appreciate the quality of various case sources, and the benefits of consistency - case to case. I have some custom dies in a few calibers, but Redding and Forster products too are part of whatever success I've had. I've never used a collet die, so I can't comment on them. (I go back to lessons gained from the Case Master and the resulting tooling/procedures used to achieve best results. And, once found, I seem to stop searching for "a better mouse trap", for the sake of change. I guess some would call that "set in his ways". LOL)
