You're good. If memory serves, 1.740 is min SAAMI spec. I know my X-Die requires trimming to 1.740. The next firing/resizing will probably stretch it back to min.

When that one wears out, check out the Wolff XP spring #32725 that AZ Husker referenced. Many of the Pro owners swear by it. My 14k round Pro loves them as does my Champion and CCO.
