Hi Chris…I think backing off the die is your issue… instead you should be screwing it down by 1/8 inch increments bumping the shoulder back…I think thats where you are having your issues…check out this link to see if you are doing the steps in the die setup correctly…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PIO37hANQlY
Also…are you resizing the “new” winchester cases as well?
If you are, and the die is set wrong, its all makes sense with what you are experiencing.
Have you tried chambering an empty case into the rifle after you resize it? That will rule out a few thing right away. If the bolt throw is heavy or sticky then you have an issue with the die setup.
