7mmRm brass form to 300 wm brass??

i aquired some 7mmRm loading goodies recently.i however dont have a 7mmRm.i do however have a 300wm.is it possible to run the 7mag brass through my 300wm fl die,then blow shoulder out with cream of wheat fireform method?both of these calibers headspace off the belt.headspace should not be a problem while cow fireforming.the only problem i see might be the 7mag case length and shoulder/neck juncture are roughly .100 to.150 thousandths shorter than 300wm.will this or could this make the necks of the "formed" brass short?help guide me here.i'm driving down a road i've never driven on before.jason:confused:light bulb

Forming new cases and shortening a neck maybe .020" won't really make a difference. Shortening .120" on an already short neck is far too much.
