Case Seperation

I am wondering what would cause a case to seperate 11/16" up from the base. The case will seperate I know on the expansion ring if stretched too much or from excess head space.

As posted over on Practical Riflery, a chamber being 'sub-minimum' diameter wouldn't cause a split or separation as you describe. Excessive headspace would, or over-pressure would. I am glad you have the issue fixed (you've fired the rifle since its return and it is, indeed, fixed, right?). Still, I think there were two separate issues at work here. Hopefully, correcting the one will have the impact of 'correcting' the other.
