Re: Fireforming .270 AIs ...

winmag,

I hear you on the shoulder concern, thanks!

Not sure on velocities, but "hoping" somewhere around 3000 FPS without extreme pressure.

As I understand it, capacity is close to .270 WSM ... hopefully, someone will chime in.

Cheers!

Ed

Re: Fireforming .270 AIs ...

Win brass will get you more volume to be sure. I load a compressed charge of wc872 in mine with a 130 bonded(because I got interbonds for $8 per hundred so I bought 1000 and had to make 'em shoot) and the win brass will take charges that will bulge rems or fed. The primer pockets are to darn shallow though. I said I'd like to say to stay away from win simply because you really shouldn't have to ream pockets as much as you have to with newer win brass. It is just fine after you get the pockets squared away.

WOW! That's an awesome deal.

I appreciate the note on the shallow primer pockets. Thanks!
