    6 PPC from 220 Russian Lapua

    So, you guys have talked me into 6PPC....looks like I need to learn to make 6PPC from 220 Russian.

    This looks like Expand on mandrel, then FL size to get full neck length, then Expand on mandrel, neck turn, load and shoot. Should I anneal after neck turning? Is there a better way?

    How do you do it?

    Is the Norma brass any good?

    Itís really that simple.

    I expand, then neck turn, fireform.

    I purposely make my chambers to where the necked up 220 Russian actually needs to be bumped back a tad to chamber.

    When you fireform, smear a thin coat of sizing wax on the cases, that will help them take the form of the chamber enter.

    If your rifle is chambered deep, the trick is to seat a bullet to where it jams the lands do the case head sits firmly against the bolt face.

    Do you know what the neck diameter is on the reamer that your gunsmith is using? Based on its dimension, you may only need a skim turn on the necks.

    Regarding the Norma brass, I've used an awful lot of it and know quite a few that do use it and have no complaints with it.

    Have you been able to find any new brass?? WD

    I do mine a little different. I have a fire forming barrel. I load my 220 Russian with a heavy dose of Bullseye and seal the neck with wax and Fireform. I do coat my brass with a light coat of grease. After fire forming my brass grows in length and I have to expand very little before turning the necks.

    And makes the straightest brass.

    Just a thought

    In addition to the above good information.
    You might want to go to www.accurateshooter.com or 6mmBR.com Same place and look for the left side of the screen home page.
    There you will find a listing of cartridges. Go down to the 6ppc and you will find a plethora of information as well as the 3 accepted types of preparing the brass from the .220 R
    Choose one or more and let the fun begin.

    Not if you use sheets of candle wax. When I run out I will take Bill's idea on play dough.
