260 using 243 lapua brass

When you form brass for the 260 Remington using 243 lapua brass, do you need to turn the necks? I have heard that you can get a doughnut if you do not.

Also having a hard time finding load data for 260 using reloader 17.

You don't have to turn the necks on 243 because it is smaller than the 260 (6.5).

It is always a good idea to just clean up the necks just to true them ,but the lapua brass is
almost perfect so it doesn't need it.

I use 308 Lapua brass for my 7/08 and and turn just enough to clean it up and make it
uniform before sizing it to 7/08.(When sizing down neck wall thickness may thicken.But sizing up you will have no problem.

Red Mist,

Don't do this. If you form the 260 cases from our 243 brass, they'll have the wrong headstamp. This isn't something you'll find on Wikileaks, but it's top-secret information from Finland, so I'd have to kill you if I told you. But if you'll wait 'til after the SHOT Show (next month in Vegas) that headstamp issue won't be a problem for you . . . if you get my drift.

Kevin

Is there any other new calibers coming from Lapua that you know nothing about????

You know, if could get Lapua to make 300RUM brass there are a whole bunch of Edge shooters that would probably name their first born after you... LOL

B23,

Nothing on the horizon that I've been privy to, but I'll pass that along to the (Finnish) powers that be!
