I thought about something like that but I would probably have my custom dies by that time. I guess I need to calm down. I want to shoot this thing!!......Rich

Re: 6.5 ss final design

Will the newer Hornady neck dies work?

This is like .... smelling apple pie and knowing that you can't have any. It's just sick and wrong.

On another note: if this is produces what you want how does a guy go about duplicating such a project? For example I would want the same barrel for my savage and then have to get brass etc. Probably not a good round for a guy like me due to the set up process but this is similar to what I want for our outfitter rifle. Short action, 6.5, fast, low recoil, and accurate.

Unless they are REALLY new, they will only fit the .530" head size.....Rich

Brent....case forming is fairly simple. When I get my custom dies in, I may find it is really simple if I can run the parent case thru in one pass. After that it is just a matter of turning the necks slightly and trimming to length. If enough guys decide to build this, and I think they might when the results come in, I may have headstamp brass available? There isn't ANYTHING out there that is quite like this and I can see some real potential........Rich

Sweet. Love the fact a few brave souls experiment and bring options to the table.
