My bushing die is a fls bushing die. Does what you say still apply? I had a nice gentleman offer me a small base body die for a fair price. I think i will take him up on it. The 243die is working however. Is there any reason why i shouldn't use it? Thanks fellas!! Lee

alf,

Why in the world would you waller out a tight chamber? Not only would this tend to over work the brass but then you will have to fire form every new case to get it to fit the sloppy chamber. Get a small base die and yes Redding makes them.

Like i said above the reamer was a rented reamer from a friend of my smiths. He didnt have the blue print of the reamer. I dont remember who my smith said made the reamer but my smith called the folks that made it. The reamer is for Lapua brass it is just a tight bore reamer. The smith who owns the reamer has chambered quite a few barrels with it without any issues what so ever. I would not have had any either , had i started with fresh .Rifle is shooting better than i thought it would and all will be fine. Just another lesson among many associated with this great sport. Thanks Lee

Lee: I'am guessing that the full length sizer die would work the body. My Forster Precision Bushing Bump die won't work the body that much so the "body" takes care of thet. But it's not needed "every time". The full length .243 die might be too long to get the right feel but as long as it works, use it. I'de rather work with a "shorter" body die for the BR case. But that's just me. And they're not that expensive. Maybe $25.00 or $30.00. Been a while. Got mine at Midsouth along with the Forster Bushing die. No need for a "custom" made die.
And I wouldn't touch the chamber. Work the brass! JMHO.

Well-- simply because a small base die can only size down the case body so far, there is a small portion of the case head (perhaps .060 above the extraction groove) which cannot be swagged down in diameter because this is where the solid brass web is ...and nothing short of a massive hydaulic press can accomplish this.
It all depends how "tight" the chamber is.
For me, I'm through with tight chambers as they have always been problematic for me,and I don't see any difference in accuracy as a result.
As far as having to "fireform" new brass, it will be very minimal and when fireforming PPC and BR cases the accuracy during this proceedure rivals that of my subsequent match loads.....and that pesky bolt click is gone if I FLS everytime.

I just used the .30-06 die to resize 15 pieces of 6mm Lapua brass that were a tad too big in the rear end.LOL

Could not bear to scrap them !

This method worked well but resulted in moving the case shoulder
forward by .008" above maximum on my Wilson gage.

As mentioned the shoulder needs to be bumped back.

Something else to buy. LOL

Regards,

Steve

In case the original question has not been answered, REDDING makes a small base die for the 6BR.
