Never seen a problem with the primer pocket side of a flash hole (some 375/2½ Bertram excepted) but there are occasions when it might be desirable to knock dags of punched flash holes on the inside of the case.

According to the latest from Bryan Litz, on Lapua brass don't touch the flash hole. Unify depth only.

Norma brass should also be included with Lapua.
