This may make a few people wonder why, but I have my reasons. Namely Lee has offered to give me a few once fired 270 brass. I need to 30-06 brass to start me off and money is real tight as I'm going for the rifle, dies and bullets all off the sale of my 22WMR. I can't afford to plump for brass right now, so it's the 270 or no shooting for a while.
SO. I want to form 30-06 from 270 with a 30-06 FL sizer. I know they are very similar. Is the shoulder on a 270 at least as far forward as on a 30-06? Can I do this safely in other words? I know I may end up with thinner necks but even if I get only 2 or 3 reloads that's fine. I will anneal first.
Anyone else any experience of this?
