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

    After this
    it's Charmin.
    As the company claims, "Those who go with Charmin really enjoy the go."

    Ouch, you went with a tight neck so a regular neck, stuff, and pull the trigger to form won't work well. ugh.....
    I suppose the brass won't come out square enough (from necking) to thin the necks before forming will it?? If so you are stuck making breakfast.
    Side note, why not use a 300 win or 300 rum and be done with it??

    The case is elkaholic's design, and a great design at that. The hornady 375 ruger brass is quite thick, so even a "no turn" neck would have problems. We had a 300 rum, then had it re barreled and re-worked (by Nathan Dagley, he is in Center, ND) into this gun, plus, RUM and win mag are boring.
