I have lot's of 270 brass that l have fire formed. It is the same length as the 280. Just neck them up to 30 cal. And neck them down to 7mm and leave a shoulder like you would the 30 06.

    Mostly camera angle, there is a very slight difference but the lapua was only once(full house) fired some years ago and that particular nosler is up to 6 cycles now .
