Re: 6 mm ackley

Chuckster ,
I think you form the brass from Norma 7 x 57 .
.308 is considerably shorter than 6mm Rem I think you'll find .
Do a Google search on 6mm Ackley . There's an article there somewhere on the procedure .

    Believe that Norma make brass for the 7 x 57 which is supposed to be better than 6mm Remington brass . Think I would just do some case prep. on Rem. brass and (if you're keen )sort by weight . Quite a few coming to the conclusion that neck thickness / tension is the major factor in prepping brass and that a lot of the other procedures don't make a noticeable difference unless you're shooting a 6PPC in benchrest competition . Their story , not mine . I don't have an opinion .

    3sixbits,
    How do you get your Lapua 308 brass to grow 6mm when you form it to 6mm AI?
