Did some searching could not find a good answer, shooting Lapua BR Brass small primer. It seems I am getting variation in the primer pockets when reloading after just a couple of reloads. Some still have some tension when repriming and some go in very easy (almost too easy). How loose is too loose?

When it's too easy, but try a different primer to see their a difference in feel. Try a federal primer I think you be surprised.

I’ve always wondered this now I know. I have Hornady brass on its 13 firing and the primer pockets are looser than the new brass I have but still has quite a bit of resistance going in
