Re: Forming 25-06 from Lapua 30-06

In the past what I have done to neck down 30-06 to 25-06 was:
First run them through a 270win FL die then I belive the 25-06 FL die.
Its been several years since I have done it so I may have used a 264 win mag die (just to neck size) between the 270 and 25-06 dies.
With the brass I was using (can't remember which brass)I didn't need to turn necks just trim a lot.
Factory chamber.

    .25-06 brass is really the way to go - make them consistent and shoot. But then where would the fun of arguing be?

    p.s if necking down, skip the 270 intermediate step stuff - been doing 30 to 25 for 23 years and have been just fine.
