    Small primer 6.5cm vs large

    I can't speak as to the accuracy gains of the small vs large rifle primer brass, but I can say that if you buy the Lapua brass you need to ensure your dies have pins small enough to fit in the flash holes. Not a big deal by any stretch, but can be a pain if you don't ensure it's sorted. Scotch egg: you have any experience of the quality of the starline stuff compared with Lapua?

    Bump shoulder back

    In terms of this competition shell holder set, is 2 thou the standard amount for bumping back the shoulder?

    Bump shoulder back

    Thanks for the responses thus far. I'm now looking to get a body die to go with my neck sizer to bump my shoulders back, is it simply a case of screw the die in and use it just like my neck sizer? Or is one of those fiddly setting up jobs that requires me to shell out for more bits of measuring equipment?

    Bump shoulder back

    Hello all, I currently neck size only, I'm informed that at some point I'll need to bump my case shoulders back and I'm wondering at about how many reloads you would expect this to become a neccesity? Shooting 6.5 Creedmoor with Lapua brass at moderate pressures. Currently sitting around 3 reloads per case. Thanks.

    As I've said, the damage is being done before the trimming process, maybe I could do with replacing my trimmer for a nicer one but a blunt cutter isn't the issue here.

    Good replies last couple, any specific recommendations for a decent trimming tool and a better deburring tool? Also, can the propellent have an effect? I know certain ones are harsher on barrels than others.

    I trim with a case trimmer, a Lee precision one, the type that comes in two pieces. One end that goes down the case and contacts the base that the case screws into. I deburr with a deburring tool.

    Tbh, my rifle still seems to be shooting fine, but clearly it's still bugging me. Is there a chance this isn't even a big problem?

    No, some cases are fine, some have a couple of gouges, some look like they've been dragged across a brick.

    The second photo still isn't clear?

    Aha! Laying them on the side indeed allowed me to focus on the case mouths. Better photo for you all. Nice one on the left, knackered one of the right.

    I've got plenty of nice neat cases, but an alarming amount of these gouged up ones. Same thing with my old .308.

    All this brass has done 2-3 firings. Most disappointing.
