I have a 25 saum would I be able to use a 7mm saum redding body die?
As long as it's just a necked down 7saum.
I don't know. Downsizsing 3cals extended shoulder length, likely beyond contact with the die. That is, shoulder area near the new neck-shoulder junction would not be under die control. This much will expand with both firing and body sizing, and then how will you bump it back?
Might work, might not.
Yes it is just a 7saum necked down. Yeah Mike that is the concern I had about it also. The difference in .284 to .257 and if the shoulder would be pushed back enough. Thanks
You can try what you have & if nothing else look into a custom body die. They're reasonably priced from JLC Precision. Send Jim a few fully fire formed cases.
I've been using a 270 Win full length die for my 25/06 to sub for a body die. Everything seem ok, but seems is a big word. Do you think this is a good idea. I'm not sure if all the shoulder angles are ok.
The 270Win has a longer neck than 25-06. Does not seem a good idea to substitute these, as a FL die is not a body die.
