Re: 243 w/small primer

Thanks for the replies guys. I think I will just stick with the standard case. I have a Model 7 that I hope to rebarrel some day.

    From my understand, very little. You still get a bit more velocity with the 243.

    The issue is case capacity and the primer pocket will effect the base web, not the case.... your Lapua brass case capacity is the determining factor due to pressure build-up.

    Never hurts to hit on an old thread that is only a yr old. A guy may have forgotten about his thread (like me) and want to hear any updates to the question. Thanks for the response.
