Re: Norma, worth the trouble?
You raise a couple of interesting points with the tight neck comment, I hadn't thunk of. 1.) If I were to go with a Norma of Lapua 7x57 a standard reamer would give me a pseudo tight neck. 2.) Using 6mm brass and necking up.
I've been debating going with a tight neck (.284)anyhow. Understanding both would require some extra effort to prep, which of the two would be the best option? Necking down (7x57) for a standard reamer, pseudo tight, or necking up (6mm) for a tight necked reamer?
