I was curious about this. I have come up with a wildcat, it is basically a shortened and AI 7mm SAUM. My thoughts / question is could I get a Redding competition seating die and just run my chamber reamer in there to cut the shoulder bcak to 40'? Then I suppose that I would have to cut the body down to length as well. Do you think that this would work or do you have any other suggestions?
