So, i have finally decided to pull the trigger on a long time Wildcat i have been lusting over, the mighty 6.5/06 which is a necked down .30/06 case to 6.5mm! My reasons are many, mostly because the 6.5mm bullets are so darn good, and the large efficient case can push them at velocities the old 6.5s couldn't dream of. With modern barrel making and metallurgy, throat erosion should no longer be an issue, so, why not take advantage of what this ol' hotrod can do!?!?! I have the Highly desirable Doumoulin Mauser action and am working with my smith on a good barrel! Here is my issue, reloading dies! Redding and Lee both catalog full sets, and thats great, however, neither addresses( that I can find) case forming! I.e. expanding .25/06 Brass, or shrinking .270 or .30/06 brass, nor does it address if its possable to use the better MIL. Spec brass to form this chambering! So, I call upon the vastness of knolage here in the monkey tree to help answer some of these questions! Wish me luck!
