Re: need help with 7mm belted cases

I have always setup my RCBS belted cases with a nickle ontop of the holder and then screw down the die until it touches. This sizes the case nicely and leaves the bottom portion to have a better fit in that rifle.

Re: need help with 7mm belted cases

Could someone explain in fine detail what this "donut" approach actually. I thought from past threads, you don't want a donut?

Thanks all.

What I call the donut is the last part of the neck against the shoulder that has "Not" been sized
and remains the size of the neck chamber after fire forming.

In other words If the neck is .300 thousandths long you would size only .280 to .290 and leave
10 to 20 thousandths UN sized .

What this does is to assure that the neck is centered to the bore after sizing when chambered.

Exactly.

Re: need help with 7mm belted cases

Bommtube said it like it should be done. belted cases are not as hard as we make them. Head space of the sholder or belt. My 7 mag likes me to adjust the die to the shell holder and 1/8 turn out. the die is a lee FL sizer and works just fine.

Re: need help with 7mm belted cases

In my rifle I have to full length resize otherwise it will not go back into the chamber. Something to check first.
