Re: 338 lapua body die

on the money bronz as always.. I have 20 shots on my first 25 rounds of lapua.. I anneal every 3 firings.. best investment I have made.. and love the shellholder set from redding.. really helps brass life and with chambering problems.. thats your issue.. your brass is getting bigger after each firing.. the body die will cure that.. and really help in more accurate shoulder bump of your cases..

    I have the stepped shell holders, I tried using them with the forester dies they didnt work as intended.
    I anneal as well I bought BROZ old ken light

    And some say Lapua brass is expensive.. I think if they ever actually used it they might see what a value it really is.

    I hear ya! After getting a taste of Lapua brass, i dont want to use anything else if i dont have to. If they only made 300 rum brass.

    Thats why im building a 284 win rather than a rsaum or wsm so i can use necked up Lapua 6.5x284 brass.
