Sizing once fired .338 LM brass to 30-338 - Is it ok?
I've got a .338 lapua at the moment and the barrel is very nearly shot out...
If I get a new barrel in 30-338 will I be able to resize the once or twice fired 338 lapua brass ok? Or does it need to be new brass only that you size down?
The reason I ask, is that I've got 500 pieces of once fired brass from a couple of years ago and 400 twice fired. With lapua .338 brass here in the UK at $500 per 100!!!!!! I'd rather not have to buy any new brass at the cost of another barrel per 100 pieces.
The reason I want to change, is that my local range has now banned anything over 30 cal and the next range is 6 hours drive away, which is a bit much with he price of gas here at $10 a gallon!
All thoughts greatly appreciated.
