Re: 6.5x284 lapua brass in 6.5x284 win chamber
It is also my understanding that the lapua brass and Norma chamber is approximately 0.001 wider at the web/base, so you might find that chamber a bit tight and need to get a small base body die.
My brother did the converse and used Winchester 6.5x284 brass in a 6.5x284 Norma chamber. two firings and the primers pockets didn't hold a primer (with nominal pressure and velocity loads). He talked to the smith and they told him to step up to the Lapua brass, since it was designed to use in the Norma chamber.
