Re: Neck sizing

why would you want to neck down a 338 win mag to a 30 cal when all you got to do is buy 300 win mag brass. because thats what it would be.

Re: Neck sizing

I do believe that 300 Win mag brass is longer than a 338 win Mag so that won't work.

Are you trying to make 308 Norma Mag cases?

Re: Neck sizing

See, the way I read it, he owns a 30-338 and some surplus 338 brass and wants to use the brass without buying a necking die? LB

Re: Neck sizing

I have a 30-338 win mag,wich in turn is a necked up 7mm mag or a necked down 338 mag.My delimma is i used 7mm necked up because i had 7mm brass,i have never turned the necks or length cut them and the brass is still to small,i can't neck fit them to my gun,or length them.
