La Pua [From 30-06 to 25-06] Help!!!

Ladies and Gents,
What's the proccess to form La Pua 30-06 into 25-06? Do I just drop the 30-06 case in a 25-06 risizing die? is it worth it? This would be used on a factory Remington 25-06. Would I have to neck turn? Any comment would be appreciated. Thanks!!! Eaglet.

You should neck it down in steps... go through a .270 FL die first.

In a factory .25-06 chamber, you will NOT need to turn the necks.

You will LOVE the Lapua cases.

Why would you tell him to go throught .270 first? Not necessary at all. Been doing 30 to 25 for about 23 years with no troubles.

When I started forming the cases, I had the .270 die and it just made things go smoother - I did not mean to imply that it is necessary... just smoother.

I dont know what gives here, but one time I got bored and tried putting a 30-06 case through my 25-06 FL die and I didn't get a very good looking case. It looked like the shoulder was all messed up, and I dont know if its suppose to look like that or what. Myabe I"ll do it again and take a picture this time. I'd like to use some lapua cases in my 25-06, so I think I"ll try it when I get home. Something just didn't seem right to me the way it looked. I wouldn't know if it would be ok to chamber in my rifle [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

Never made any for a 25-06 but I have made a pile for the 6mm-06 and I used a 270 neck die first. I sure that with the annealed cases that it probably woulden't be any trouble as long as you use a good lube
