Re: 6 mm ackley
[ QUOTE ]
thanks for the info!!! I agree with the brass quality. I am a beginner reloader but i can see the odd necks on alot of the brass. Have a 6 neck turner on order. It is the most incosistant brass i have seen so far. Has anybody used norma 7x57 brass? I have rediing full length and neck s dies, can i buy a 6.5 bushing and start necking 7x57 brass down and finish with my 6 neck bushing? I know I will have to neck turn but how hard is it to?
[/ QUOTE ] Well this is a quick road to crooked necks, That the sort of thing I did years ago making cases for chambers that I had no chance of finding the parent cases for. It is a tuff way to go and keep the necks where you want them. A little trick I picked-up many years ago that helps if you don't have a way to spin the cases (and don't want to buy a good spinner) is look at the base of each case and look for primer holes off center to the case head. That will give you a fair idea if the case is lopsided or not. I would not switch to mag primers! RL-22 would be my first choice for powder. But I really think you need to look at your bullets first. You might want to try some Clinch River bullets. Bergers may be OK but I haven't shot any since Walt sold the company to SPIVEY (J-4) so I can't say if they are still made in the hand dies like they were before they went to California from Phoenix? The one thing I would not do is change a bunch of things at one time! Change only one component at a time. Start with your bullets! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
