Thats probably the best suggstion that will work.

    A little powder between the pimer and seating the bullet might help in the performance department.

    If not there's a current thread on removing stuck bullets - LOL

    Just a thought.

    I have used 7mm Weatherby brass from Remington. Sized first in a 270Wby die then a 257Wby die. I had no problems doing it this way. I guess the same can be done from 7mm Rem brass, but the case will not be perfect as with the 7mmwby brass.
