    Default Possible "universal" case forming dies

    Thought of you guys and some of the wildcats you're doing/thinking about when I stumbled onto this site. Their claim is (I think) you can use their die set on most any brass to case form it smaller.

    I have a daughter. I tell her, "911 is what you dial after you're raped. 1911 is what you should have before they try."

    that is interesting. im not sure how you can handel the vast differances in case taper and neck angles with such few dies???? but you could certainaly create new wild cars with the angles and tapers they give you. Im still thinking a simple necked down 6mm 0r 6,5, 6.8 mm -7.62x39 would be a great wild cat for a AK because all you would be changing is the neck diamiter and possably the throat angle. Id keep the same case taper so it would fit a standard curverd 7.62x39 mag some thing the grendal and 6.8 spc cant do. yeay the grendal would have better case capacity BUY the necked down only version would only need a barrel change to work and feeding and reliabilty in dirty conditons would likley be better due to more case taper. Id like to have a set of those dies to play with if nothing else they would be good to get a case close enough to FL size or fire form. thanks for the link

    That's my thought, too. I don't see how this set could do it any other way.

    Could definitely have some fun experimenting with a set of those!
