Re: brass for a .308 norma?

I have been forming from 300 win mag Norma brass. With rem and win brass I get collapsing areas in the neck. Any sugestions.

When you say "collapsing areas" are you talking about vertical creases? Often time if you use too much sizing lubricant, this happens. Many times they get blown out with fire forming, but not always.

They are vertical creases but I've tried cutting back on the lubing. I've had experience with overlube. The creases do not blow out when firing. It seems like it does it with remington and winchester cases but not with Norma cases. It seems like the norma cases are softer or more malleable for reforming.

try annealing the necks and shoulders before forming the cases to see if that helps you out.
