338 EDGE brass forming?

I just picked up a used 338 Edge built by Shawn.

What process are you Edge shooters using to form brass?

    just run them through your sizing die. Make sure you have plenty of lube on the case and inside the neck

    Z,

    Thanks for the reply........ works great. With my other wildcats, I have to fire form brass and have never tried just expanding the neck like that. I thought that was all I needed to do, but just wanted to be sure. Thanks again.

    I use nosler brass and they were much harder to expand than remington brass. had to really lube the inside of the case neck for them to work smooth. I also ground my expander in the sizing die to have a sharper profile.
