Re: ? for you guys who mees with alot of wildcats
yes Jerry I've fireformed and reloaded some cases, my cases end up with a .015 thick neck on one side and .012 on the other, without turning any load which pushes a 140 above 3150 fps blows the primer due to the thick necks, The smith who built it swears I shouldn't hafta turn and should be able to comfortably get 3300 fps out of it, and I have gotten a 140 to that speed but afterwards the cases are junk. just trying to get out of neckturning but still get decent velocities, guess I'll have a bushing die made.
Kirby, could I get by with a 6.5/06 bushing die just to neck down virgin cases? or do I need to have one reamed?
BTW, if I fireform with H4831 and a bullet vs. cow, the necks are thinner but still uneven due to the initial neckdown.
