We do this all the time with 300 win brass necked down to 7mm for the 7-300's. Same sizes and process.

...aaaaand, if you're worried about the necks being too thick, you can buy some Lapua 260 Rem brass, and neck that up, instead.

Would it be better to neck up from .260 or neck down from .308 ??? PS. What powder and bullets are you guys shooting? Sorry for the hijacking, I just started loading for my new 7-08.

Been using Winchester with no problems but I don't beat the crap out of it. I have some Norma, haven't used it yet.

Catfur is on the money, if you neck up 260 Lapua brass the neck will get slightly thinner and you won't come up .015" short on case length.
