Re: 7mm wildcat
I'm on the 9th loading with the Lapua brass, no anneal yet. After forming with Cream of Wheat I trimmed them all to 2.695 to clean them all up .005 or so, most of them were just under or right at 2.700 after forming. Chamber length for mine is .005 over the initial brass length, which ends up being 2.725. My brass has grown very slowly up to 2.715 and stabilized there, doesn't appear I'll need to ever trim them really. Maybe that will change when I anneal them and they'll grow a bit again... Mine only get bumped back a thou or so too. I do not miss the trim job. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] A lot of it is probably due to the die not sizing the diameter down excessively as well.
