Give me the best way to make 25-06ai brass.
Load the casing...put into 25-06 chamber ...aim...and pull the trigger. Internal pressure in that case will blow it out to fit the AI chamber just perfectly
And then the case is 0.20" short.
Buy new .270 Win brass, run them through your full-length .25-06 AI die, then trim them the brass to 2.514". Chamfer & deburr the case necks. Then load up your brass, and seat the bullets up to the lands (press fit), then fire.
This happens with EVERY improved chamber, it is NOT a problem, just load and shoot them.
The cases WILL grow and need trimming EVENTUALLY.
I figured that it would. I believe that is what I am going to do.
Also, load a fairly light load. I usually run about 48gr of Alliant RL-19 for forming.
Hi 5!! Some just get their pantys in a wad over that .02 dont they
You be nice!
I use my varmint loads for 25-06 to reshape the brass. You can shoot many in a day and get double duty instead of shooting paper on a load you dont care about. 75 gr hornadys fly out of a long barreled 25-06ai.
Then i use the brass for my real hunting purposes.
Good quality Brass for 25-06 was in short supply when I had my 25-06 AI Built. I just bought some Sako 117 grain Factory Ammo and it formed perfectly. The Brass is good too. I now have 100 Nosler for when I re barrel in standard 25-06. The AI has been a little disappointing for me.
