    Winchester 243 Brass

    I had some accumulated 243 brass from range pickups which I tried swapping for something useful to me, but no takers, so I had a go at converting them myself... 6.5x47L.

    Annealed them, sized the bodies down, opened the necks up, cut them down, turned the necks, chamfer, deburr, all that jazz. Chucked in 37gr of BM2 under a Speer TNT, fired them off and annealed them again.

    Results were great. The fireforming load was very accurate - especially the Winchester brass - 8 or 9 half-arsed shots into 0.5".

    So now I'm on the look out for some more! Anyone got some 243 they can spare?
