    Excellent article. Could you please give some advice on the best way to fire form brass. There seems to be a lot of suggestions out there.
    Thanks

    My personal method is to use a light charge of pistol powder behind cornmeal filled to the base of the neck. A small piece of paper towel pushed gently into the neck holds this mess in place.

    Fire at your rifle range, clean often and voila - fireformed cases. If you are improving a case, this method will get you a 90% formed shoulder, plenty good for the first full pressure loading.

    With any fireforming the goal is to ensure the parent case is expanded to fill the chamber dimensions without excessive stretching of the case web. If a case is undersized and a full pressure load fired, the web may stretch to the point where a couple of future firings cause a split.

    By careful sizing/matching to the chamber or using a low pressure method like the cornmeal method, the brass can be eased into shape.

    Once proper headspace is established and maintained, high pressures can be introduced with little stretching and long case life.

    Hi there , just wondering what Die and seater set you would recommend for my Savage 110 FCP in 338 Lapua Mag.


    Forster 2 FL die set, getting the FL die custom honed out for about 2-3 thous. neck tension on a seated bullet and the competition micrometer seater ,

    OR
    Redding Bushing bump 3 die set that does the neck seperately, and has a body die to bump the shoulder back and do the body taper. along with the comp . seater die. its about 300 bucks last I looked.


    I just dont know the Lapua brand 338 LM brass too well, it seems real thick so I dont know if I will be FL sizing all the time. and dont want to create more of a donut inn the neck shoulder junction with a bushing die setup.

    Thoughts?



    Thanks

    Patrick
