Fireforming 6.5mm Creedmoor

Is it feasible to fireform Creedmoor cases using 260 Rem brass?

Yes, you have to do some work though. The 260 has a shorter neck, you'll have to ream the inside and possibly cut some off the outside.

I used some .308 brass for mine and it just required inside reaming. I annealed the cases prior to sizing. I sized them down in 3 steps with Imperial Die Wax.
