well after a few goes at case forming I have bought some more toys and am fairly close to making a run of brass for Clayp1g and I when our new rifles arrive.
Today sat in the sun after a night shift I managed to anneal over 200 decent .308 once fired cases and since taking a few lessons on neck turning from my mate a certain antipodean match rifleman I have ordered the bits I need. The brass above is today's effort, hopefully now I will have a better success rate than the roughly twelve percent rate previously
The brass requires annealing at what appears to be half way down the body as we are not only setting the neck and shoulder back 8mm but also reducing the body and neck down to 7mm in places, the neck turning will be required to remove the excess brass allowing the rounds to chamber
The case on the left has a wrinkle on the shoulder, changing methods slightly means this shouldn't happen and the case on the right is what it should look like, below is the good case at 51mm long against the 43mm long loaded case of the 7mm Mk1Z from the EM2 or Rifle No9
So on we go, updates to follow!
