    Confused about 7mm-270wsm and .284 win

    What is a 7mm-270wsm is the barrel chambered to a .270 wsm but for a 7mm bullet and how do you get the brass? I am also thinking of getting a .284win but is the brass exactly the same as the 6.5-284 and is just a cases of necking up with a 7mm .284 die? All my rifles are common calibers and have no problems getting Lapua brass for my other rifles.

    The first, the chamber takes 270WSM brass necked up to 7mm and the bore is for 7mm/.284 bullets. You can just use an expander die and mandrel for the neck and then the cases will fireform as you shoot them.
    The same for the .284 - people like to use 6.5-284 lapua brass and neck it up to 7mm/.284 using the same expander mandrel as above.
