making a 308 from a 30-06 case


Recommended Posts

Should be real easy to do.  Determine the length to cut the case first.  Run it through the sizer die, make final length corrections after that.  Very similar process to making 300BLK from 5.56 NATO.  You're only going from 7.62x63 to 7.62x51.

 While the base dimensions are the same, the shoulders are 2.5 deg. different. Spend a few bucks and get some .308 dies and some 1x-fired LC cases. I wouldn't do it. My face is too important.
