    .243 fireformed in another rifle....

    A good friend of mine has given me some .243 fireformed lapua brass, these have been through one firing the question i have is should full length size them and fire form them? I do know this is the correct way but can i just necksize, trim to length and use?

    By all means neck size but don't come crying when you jam one in the chamber... you know what you have to do...

    I got some once fired .270 brass yesterday and i cant even close my bolt on them so it will be full length sizing for me when i start to reload.

    Depends if his chambers slacker than yours? If it is and the cases fit without undue force, then neck size them and get on with it. If there's a load of resistance then FL size them.
    I'm telling Captain - from the Wee'est of men.

    There is a school of thought that fl sizing gives better accuracy!
