Rich, do you have a method to figure out what neck length per cal you want or do you just have a favorite.

Hi Rhian.....I am no expert by any stretch but I ask a lot of questions. I like to have at least the length of the bullet diameter and in this case shooting my 225 grainers at approx. 1.66" in length, I felt the .320" neck would be good........Rich

Gunwerks has their 7 lrm and the shoulder is already pushed back. You might only need to run it over the expander and then fireform. At $1.25 a piece of brass this might be much cheaper and easier to achieve your goal

Do you know if the LRM just has the shoulder pushed back and nothing else?

Its proprietary. Brass is made for gunwerks by hornady. It will be out in feb. Currently they use 375 basic brass and form it in 4-5 steps with forming dies from hornady. It has a long neck and the shoulder is pushed back.
