Re: 6.5 ss final design

Rich, what did y'all determine was the best twist for this caliber? Will the 8 twist shoot the 160s accurately?

Re: 6.5 ss final design

Hey Rich...I have a question...

This might sound stupid, or might not be possible, just curious though...

Are you going to design a reamer wtih a no-turn neck? Just a standard thickness neck for the RSAUM brass?

Also, is your 6.5 Sherman reamer a no-turn?

Reason I ask, is that I don't own a neck-turning tool, and anytime things can be simplified, I'm all about it. Especially with brass quality and tooling quality these days. My smith even agrees that neck-turning is almost a thing of the past (other than for BR comps and wildcatting) with the quality of today's high-quality brass.

Thanks.

Cool! Keep me updated man! I'm not positive if I might have my .30-06 AI opened up to .300 Sherman or not. But it's always on the back on my mind.

If you had a set of carbide reamers for chamber & FL sizing die, I could open up my current nice Redding .30-06 AI dies (FL, Neck, and Seater) for the .300 Sherman. Quick, simple, and easy.

Whidden has a carbide reamer for it, but I doubt they would use it to open up your Redding die!.......Rich

It's kinda hard to chunk an almost new $110 set of dies...Especially since all it needs is the walls opened up and the shoulder pushed a bit forward.
