With the recent ongoing shortage of brass, how many of you are necking down brass that you can find for brass that you can't? For instance, I recently bought a 7mm-08 and it has become a pain to find brass for. I even went to the extent of hunting down some Cor-lokts to shoot for brass; until I noticed they were $32 a box!?!
I have several batches of 308 brass and have contemplated on using these to neck down for the 7mm-08. I know it can be done but is it worth it? To take it a step further, would it even make sense to by "quality" 308 brass and then neck those down to use?
I am shooting a stock Tikka, so I would think with the SAAMI specs I should be ok with the slightly thicker necks of the "once" 308 brass. I guess the only other concern would be with the converted 308 brass ending up slightly shorter than factory 7mm-08 specs. Plus the head stamps would be off..but nothing a slight notch in the rim couldn't solve.
