    I’m alway converting loaded brass in to empty brass. Lol. I save most of my brass and almost never pick up range brass. My club has too many reloaders. I need 45 Colt. I’ve got lots of 9mm, 45 ACP, 38 spl and 30-06 and I do need some 357. I should go to the state range in PA. They don’t let us shoot anything but .22 at NJ ranges and no handguns at all. This state sucks.

    I rarely buy factory ammo except for defensive handgun ammo. I buy components and make my own ammo for most of my shooting needs.

    seems to me that I used 8mm Mauser brass with good result. Gave the Jap rifle away to my son and he traded it.

    Probably can as they are very similar. Problem with me doing that is i shoot 8mm as well. I just made some 8mm brass from .270 as well. Made 50 and only had one split. It split really bad, from the edge of the neck down past the shoulder so it may have had a defect i didn't see. The other 49 sized out pretty good but certainly a little tougher than the 7.7. Somewhere on the web is a brass conversion chart but i can't seem to find it, anyone have a link? Still have 50 or so 270's plus another 120 or so live ammo to take apart to recycle. Also want to see what i can maybe do with .308 being i get a ton of it.

    You know that little thing inside your head that keeps you from saying things you shouldn't? Yeah, I don't have one of those.
