Ok, I am lost on the gen 1 die? Mine a Whidden fl bushing, so no clue. The brass measures .468" at the .2 mark. Not getting into this aspect, lot of diff creed reamers, I have Hornady brass fired from years ago that come from chamber at .468-469", my last 6 creed chamber used went .4714".@Milo 2.5 Just for more info, whats it put the web diameter at now once converted? .462 or .468? I assume the larger but thats good. My 6xcii has a chamber with .470 which is what the creed should be, just want to see that youre not using a gen 1 die to get them to clear in your chamber.
The first gen of the 6xc was designed around forming with 22-250 brass and has a chamber of .468 and brass of around .461-.463 which expands a few though to maybe .466 when fired.Ok, I am lost on the gen 1 die?
Ok, yeah, I remember, my history with xc gen2, lolThe first gen of the 6xc was designed around forming with 22-250 brass and has a chamber of .468 and brass of around .461-.463 which expands a few though to maybe .466 when fired.
The second gen is based around 308 base cartridges with a chamber of .470-.471 with my new norma brass being .465 or there abouts new and expands to around .468 when fired.
The second gen is just a few thou wider in the base. Most everything has been the gen ii for a decade or so from what Ive gathered. I assume that the creed would have been fine there but your measurement confirms that it is larger but not too large.
I would like to use Lapua 6.5 Creedmoor Brass to make 6XC. I looked at reamer prints and it looks like I will have to trim some length off the neck but should otherwise be an easy process. Anyone else doing this?
Woah, thats cheap! I thought the norma for 60 at gunwerks clearance was a good deal, this is 2/3 that price.Spife and Milo got it handled above, but thought I’d throw this out there.
