    Yesterday I took apart 31 Win'. factory loaded 30.06 rounds. I ran the cases through a .270 die and then through a full length 25.06 die. I then trimmed some to length. Then I cycled some through the .25 and it was really pretty smooth. Then I trimmed them all, turned the necks and de-burred the flash hole. Now they sit on my bench all loaded. This is the first time I have done this. Have I missed anything? Can't seem to get enough brass for the .25 so I figured I would try it.

    you did it. The only thing that you should remember is that you never file or grind off the caliber stamping on the base. And keep that brass and ammo away from those who can not or will not understand what you have done.
