So I had some help prepping primer pockets (girlfriend). She got a bit carried away chamfering the pocket. The primer is slightly exposed on the sides and it sits .0055Ē below the base of the brass. Am I ok here. This is new brass I am prepping for load development.

It does not look like it cut into the flash hole area at all. I just miked the depth because it looked strange.

LoL I think it should be fine. Ive had the enlisted help of a 3 year old painting inside the house the past few days.... I feel your pain. I limit his help while reloading to picking brass out of the tumbler and pulling the handle on the press.

It is a little excessive, but it will work fine. The primer area might over flow into the voided area some. And it could wear out the primer pocket area a little quicker.
