    i have been doing this since i got my cm i have as of late been reading about everyone saying its not worth the effort... i make my brass out of a single pass through my hornady custom die with decaping pin and expander ball intact i set my die to kiss my case holder and just use a little extra one shot lube i have made around a hundred rounds out of hornady 243 brass and they shoot great i havent colapsed one piece of brass yet... where is the effort

    Since it clearly works for you what difference does it make what others may say?

    I've done it with .308 and .243 cases. No problems with either, but .308 necks need to be turned.
