That's exactly what I was trying to put forth. I once knew a guy that had one of the very best barrel builders build him a 6BR. He goes out and buys a couple hundred pieces of the best brass money could buy at the time. He ruins about twenty five cases before he finds out that the dies were bad. Had he been able to use pick up brass, it'd been a lot cheaper in the long run. In this case the shooter is going with a .308, and cases are easy to come by. So he sets the shoulders back .010" and learns what he can and cannot do with the die using junk brass. That brass is also the best way to learn neck turning and what works and dosn't work so well.
