Forming 6x45mm (6mm/223) Brass – Part 2

IVI once fired brass

New cases only need their necks expanded approximately 0.019 inches to accept 6mm bullets.

No other preparation is necessary.

To do this, you lube the case and run it into your resizing die. Grease the inside of the case neck too! I use bullet maker’s lube and a Q-Tip to apply it. You can also use Hornady One Shot spray. It dries within a few minutes and does not need to be wiped off. It will not contaminate the powder.
