    Start with the #10, not the #4.

    Shoulder bump headspace

    Maybe it would be less confusing by using the standard shell holder, and make all the adjustment with the FL die, starting with the die backed off 1/2 - 3/4 turn. Check with gauge and make small adjustments till you get there and lock it down.

    Full size, neck size, or small base dies for 223 Rem?

    FL sizing die unless you have an AR with an extra tight chamber.

    Why the 7mm Rem Mag?

    Why do any other cartridges exist when there is the .50 BMG? Best question is what do YOU like?

    Wish me luck bedding new scope

    What about how the top half of the ring fits the scope? Is that not a concern like the bottom?

    Fire forming

    The most simplistic way to go is to just fire factory 25-06 in your rifle.

    Fire forming

    Bullet seating depth will not make any difference. Just make sure you are not using a reduced loading - go to the upper end for fire forming for best results. Brass case wall thickness make a difference also, some brands are thicker and you will get different results with different head stamps...

    25-06 vs 257 wby

    The 25-06 Sako L61 (Ackley barrel) I have owned for more years than I like to admit, is the most accurate tack driver I have ever owned. Shoots factory ammo as well as reloads and puts 'em in one ragged hole.

    7x57 mauser in a 700 short action

    My 7x57 likes the bullets seated out to .005" behind the lands. If I had a short action, I would have lost out on the most accurate loads that I have produced. Why limit the capabilities of the caliber? Go with the 7mm-08 if you are stuck with the short action.
