I prepped some brass for 6PPC and went dumb. I trimmed the brass to my normal 1.495. After fireforming, they are 1.480
Got a step ahead of myself for sure, and should have trimmed them after fireforming. Can you guys see any potential problems from this?
Thanks
Bryan

Bryan, I don't see any problem as long as you can keep it out of mind as being a problem:). Just don't let powder residue build up in the neck area ahead of it and then change case to a 1.5" long case as this can crimp the neck on the bullet and increase pressure.

I make it a habit to keep up on the carbon ring.

Good to hear from ya. Hope the new range is getting a solid foundation.
I've been busier than the proverbial cat covering s##t, so the phone is usually off the hook. I'll e-mail ya in a day or so.

If you are turning necks, be sure to lower the stop on the pilot by .015 if it is your practice to cut a little into the shoulder.

with the brass. Just keep the chamber clean. BTW, I will e-mail you Meyer's phone #. His e-mail is VERY UNreliable.
