Back in the day I used Rem Nickle cases for both my 6/06 (necked down 25) and for my 257 Wby (necked down 7 RM).

I kind of like nickle cases
What is involved with making 257 Weatherby cases from nickled 7 Remington Magnum?

Simple dies resizing? Case trimming? Neck turning? Etc.?

If it can be done I'd start with .264 Win mag cases. If you can't create a false shoulder then the longer throat in the Weatherby would require longer bullets be seated to touch or better to lightly jam. I wouldn't expect that you'd want turn necks on nickel plated cases.

Been a long time since I've done it but I don't recall doing anything but fl sizing down, loading and rocking on. Seems to me that the necks were a bit short but it didn't hurt a thing.

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
