, anyway I did order some 260 REM brass by Remington in case I'll have problems with resizing Lapua 308 and a deluxe set of Reading dies...
Also I was thinking, did anybody tried Redding Case Forming Dies, I checked Redding website they got big selection of forming dies from one caliber to other, but they have nothing for 260... Maybe they can make one as custom order.
So any one tried this approach?
Rt 2506 is right about the 308 being shorter but it's only .010 thousandths and after you size
down the necks they will grow longer and make up some of the length if not all and more.
Turn the necks just enough to clean them up and after sizing you shouldn't have to turn
them any more.
After sizing them down they "MUST" be trimed to make them uniform and I recommend .010
to .020 shorter than the chamber or SAMMI Spc.which ever is less.
I always recommend having brass with the proper head stamp but this is not allways possible.
The main reason I recommend sizing down is to prevent neck thinning.
