Re: Tight necks worth it?

I am interested in the standard specs of .290 neck diameter. Understanding the ultra tight neck, would this still be as critical?
When the shadows began to lengthen, I shouldered my rifle and plunged into the woods.

Re: Tight necks worth it?

Shufisher, You need to call who ever is going to chamber and find out what the neck dia is and go from there. I don't know what the neck thickness is of the brass you are going to use all I can say is with a .290 neck brass thickness has to be max .0155. Sorry cann't be of more help.
