I inherited a 270-08 rifle, dies. Is brass available? I have no idea of how to re-form 308.
It's best practice to neck down so that if someone sees the "308 WIN" headstamp and tries to shoot it in a 308, no one gets hurt, BUT it's far easier to neck up when building brass. For instance, I can take almost any 270 brass, lube it really REALLY well and make 35 Whelen brass in one pass. Try necking down 35 Whelen to 270 and you are in for a real mutt of a time, plus wrinkles in the shoulder, mashed and ruined brass, new cuss words.JBelk - I have buckets of 308 from when I shot Service Rifle in competition. All LC military brass. Wouldn't 7-08 be a bit closer in size so I don't have to worry so much about outside neck diameter? Also, I'm concerned about C.O.L. I'm so new to this, I don't even know if I'm asking the right questions. Your last comment to me was very helpful. Thanks.
