    6.5 06

    Would it be better to neck up 25 06 or can 30 06 cases simply be necked down by a pass though a 6.5 06 die
    or
    Run the 30 06 cases though a 270 die then the 6.5.

    I used 270 or 3006 brass when I had mine.
    Never tried 2506.

    It is not a big issue sizing down. Still just a run thru a die or 2. But normally need a trim iirc

    I tried 270 brass as I had a shit tonne but wouldn't chamber with out a neck turn so it became to much hassle went with 2506 brass. Where are you located I could put a piece of 3006 brass through my 6.5 06 die and see if it works for you

    Yeah pretty sure I had to trim and turn as well.
    However your kind offer should benefit the OP.

    I no longer have a 6.5-06.

    Used 3006 lapua in mine and had to neck turn a shit load off them, all depends what your neck spec is

    Dont waste your time chasing every last fps, it doesnt matter in the real world, it wont make a difference, all it will do is cause head aches and frustrations. And dont listen to silly old cunts
