Re: Forming 6mm-06 case Problems?

BTW, would you mind to give me a "refresher course" on the cream of wheat method.

Re: Forming 6mm-06 case Problems?

Dont worry to much about uneven case mouths on fireforming loads. This will be present to some degree on all cases with their necks reduced in diameter.

I do not even trim the necks square until you fireform the brass. The reason is because each case will stretch and shorten to varying degrees when fireformed. If you trim the cases before forming, you will have to do it again after forming as well so why not just do it once on the formed cases and save some bench time.

Just how I do things.
