Default Tight Neck Chambers and Neck Turning

I would like to have you guys opinions. I intentionally built my match rifle with a tight neck but I have 2 other customs that I have to turn the necks on that I didn't plan to be tight neck chambers. These were cut with PT&G reamers. I'm thinking about opening up the necks to accept factory cases. But, they shoot so well that I'm really hesitating to touch them. This is just the two varminters, not for the match rifle.

What would you do?

I learned to turn necks for my match rifle and I have the equipment. Neck turning tools, turning mandrals, expanding mandrals, measuring tools, ect. I even have bushing dies for these. It would just be nice to shoot factory ammo if I wanted. I know its a one and done deal and its not really that much work.

These are varmint weight rifles. One is in 243 and the other is 22-250AI. I use Lapua brass for all of these.

Thanks for your thoughts.
