Close, but not quite the same.small base 308 die.
whats strange is that your having issues with a BR I shot a few barrel and never had any sizing issues.Close, but not quite the same.
The ring die I have has zero chamfer at the base, and sizes *all* the way down the case web as far as it can get to the shell holder, whereas a SB die squeezes a *little* smaller, and has less radius/chamfer at the base than a regular F/L die... but it physically cannot size as far down the case web as a true ring die, both because of the chamfer/radius, and because you have to be conscious of not pushing the shoulder back too far.
I need (well, 'want' would probably be more accurate) a ring die or two in other case head sizes to go with the one I have. That one was custom made, but the guy has gone radio-silent since then. PVA was supposed to be making something similar that they called a 'small base' die that used bushings... but they don't even have it on their web site anymore.
Like I said, let me know when you find someone who makes a ring die. I'm interested.
if your ordering a prefit its not(i should say i doubt)going to be a tight chamber.Not sore on reamer and no mention of neck turning.
Called bugholes and told them I wanted a
6br and I wanted to use lapua brass and 105 hybrids.
Will give them a call and see what they say.
I'm using 540 right now.My regular load for 6mmBR is with H4895. I have Varget & H4895 on hand but I am weighing my options for future powder scarcity. My question is does anyone have a load using Norma 203B ( I know not temp stable) or Vihtavuori N540 with either 105 hybrid or 108 ELDM? just looking to expand my powder options.
