Re: Can i use the wrong dies?

my OD of a loaded case is .313 just what SBruce said it was going to be. I also use the sinclair expander.

My guess on W3P .308 230 Grain Bullet: G1 .740-.755

Mine doesn't like lot of neck tension with the brass I'm using. I got 250rd same lot # on the Win.

I've done the 6x284 and 6.5x284 both tight necks don't ask me why! I also had Win 100 in 284 then I had one build on short action that was 20 plus years ago in fact took pretty nice buck with it.

I ordered or should say gunsmith two 7mm barrel from Lilja build the 284 with first barrel 2nd one did the 280AI and both are good barrels. I've always like the 284 case and glad others are enjoying it also.

Have fun

Thanks, The main reason i went 284 win over 280 rem is it is much easier to buy 6.5x284 Lapua brass and neck up than buy Lapua 30-06 brass and neck down and neck turn.
