    Hello,

    I finally got my dies, so now I can begin sizing brass. I have never neck sized down, or fire formed for Ackley imp. I have 100 rnds of .338 Lap brass and 100 180grn bt's for the fire forming. If any of you could help me with the process so I do it correctly the 1st time, I would be grateful.

    Thank you,
    Steve

    Rockymtnmt ,

    That's a mean machine you got there !!!!

    There's a guy in alaska who shoots cartridge -hopefully he'll see this thread.

    Send 308nate a pm -he'll help you out w/ the process.

    Let us know how things go -that's a great set-up -lapua brass necked down to 30cal and AI'd....

    Good luck !!!!

    Thanks, ol mike

    I am very anxious to get going w/ it. I've had the gun now for about a year. I finally got the dies this last week, it's a long story. The good news is they are here now. I just want to make sure my loading process for forming the brass is correct before I just jump in.
