Why, why do guys make more work for themselves when they don’t have too……

Stop stuffing those phat bloated cases in your .308 sizer die risking a stuck case! You need too run them through a 30.06 sizer FIRST, then run them again through your .308 sizer.

Trust me without getting into the weeds with details, let’s just say that your arm and your brass will thank me.

Perfect Phil. We need to remember there are newbies that weren’t aware of this process and others that have been too stubborn to try it. Can’t be stressed enough that MG brass just plain sucks and alternatives are there and end up lasting loNiger for loading. Agreed, guys will thank you for expanding their knowledge base. Good man. If one can only find the bloated brass, use the 06 sizer first.
Thanks sometimes I forget, I too was once a noob.



A brief explanation for those in the wonder...

If you resize MG brass in a 308 die, the swollen brass doesn't have anywhere to go. The 30-06 die sizes the body without touching the shoulder, then the 308 die pushes back the shoulder without having to work the body.
Thanks for the back up, and well said.
