Re: best brass fire forming method?
The 7AM cartridge cases that I used to kill the 6X6 elk at 968 yards were cornmeal formed cases that was on their first loading with real bullets. I relied on what SS7MM, James Staggs, Bill Bailey and Lerch had said as well as Kirby. They all said that accuracy and power would be just fine to go straight from the cornmeal to shooting animals. Most of them had killed animals at some considerable distances with the cases that way, so they were speaking from first hand experience, and so I believed them. That is why the forum is a great place. I am loaded maybe 3 grains of H US869 below maximum but given the temperature swings I was seeing in Idaho, I was happy with the load I was shooting.
As far as other calibers and other cases I do not know anything about that. All I know is that I did what I was told to do. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
