7mm Rem Mag is the go to because of availability and price.

once fired 257 brass, well you get that with the used rifle you buy. I am kind of shy about having the wrong head stamp on cases although that round shoulder should keep accidents from happening.
Buy once cry once.
You can keep an eye on the classifieds at 24 hour campfire. occasionally you can find brass there or at least slightly reduced factory from someone who is moving on to other calibers.

I love my 257 Wby Mag and it loves the 117 grain projectiles. It shoots better than I should be able.

I found an old box of 264 Winchester brass (once fired), free to anyone who has one. S/F....Ken M

Larry Willis Collet

I thought I posted in this thread about the Magnum Resize Collet, but did not see it.

What are your thoughts on this product? Nice to have to remove the bulge just above the belt? A need, and worth the money? I would think my FL resizing die would work. Perhaps does not get close enough to the belt?

I have never used one. I've used 300 Win, 30-338 and 7mm Rem Mag for 1000yd guns and have yet to have an issue. Magnum brass typically gets tossed at 4 reloads, so perhaps I'm not keeping brass long enough. S/F....Ken M

Never seemed to have issues with belted magnums. I would just neck size and occasionally bump the shoulder back. I did keep the brass with the gun when I was loading for different 300 win mags. All my rifles were push feed guns and I wanted the brass as tight as possible in the chamber. I haven't seen a need to do a full length resize every time time on my stuff.

loaded 300 weatherby since '70 with no issues. may be an innovative solution to a non-problem.
