Re: .338 Edge Users- advice sought
i use a 30 caliber mandrel first because it straightens the necks out and sizes them a little. then the push out to 338 is not quite as much. not saying it's necessary but it's 2 steps instead of one. i use imperial sizing wax for both operations.
yes, i ordered a custom FL die from Forster. the plus side is i believe it's the best way to get straight cases. the down side is, no flexability. my chamber is 368, my loaded rounds are 365, and i ordered my die to have a 362 neck. i turn my necks ever so slight, more like just a cleaning of the high spots. wasn't my intent, but that's the way it worked out.
