RCBS Load in the Cartridge Designer software.
I still don't know how to use anything else with their software other than the cartridge designer, but it works out pretty good. LMAO!
I see that now! My caliber would be best made off the .270 as well....The longer OAL would be handy.
Good call. Thanks Mark. I'd have to neck it up to a .30, then back down to a .284 for a false-shoulder for fire-forming.
Thanks for the heads-up, I completely had a brain-fart that the .270 had a longer OAL...
Would the brass grow that 0.031" to my .280 Bama brass' OAL from necking it down to .284 from .30 if I were to use a .30-06 case?
