I trimmed the necks and fire formed the Weatherby cases in my 7mm Remington.
I'm curious, why?

    Why what? Why I used Weatherby cases? Because that is what I had. But maybe I got a benefit I didn't even know I was getting. Almost every comparison I see of the 7mm RM and the 7mm WM the WM supposedly has a lot more case capacity. That certainly isn't from external case dimensions.
