Fireforming 6.5mm Creedmoor

Registered Users do not see the above ad.

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.
Buy American, it may be your own job you are saving.
