Boss
One question, Large Pistol Primer, or Large Rifle, or does it matter?

Thanks

Why not just have a junk rifle chambered with the same reamer and fireform normally? Form enough brass for the life of your new custom barrel and then do whatever you want with the junk gun. You could rebarrel it with a factory take-off for almost nothing. Take-offs are available all over the web.

Boss just tried your method. I got back a 284 win match from Nate 308. I was using 6.5x284 Lupa brass it worked great!!!!! I didn't even have to size it up, just primied put powder in then a little cotton, and it blew neck to the my chamber. Beats the heck out of lubing, and sizing up. Thanks again Boss for sharing your knowledge.....

Speedy Gonzalez showed me how to do this---I have done thousands and he has done hundreds of thousands. Never a problem---just to a few at a time because the tube will get warm fast--let it cool.
