I realize that this may be an idiotic question. I have a 6.5x284 and since day 1 I've been using Lapua brass specifically chambered in this caliber. However, it ain't cheap and I found 100 "new in the bag" Winchester .284 cases at my Sportsman's Warehouse. I'd like to give them a try but have never resized a case from one caliber to another one. I've always just bought cases chambered in my specific caliber & loaded from there.

My question regards resizing. Do I just lube the cases (outside & inside of the neck) and run them up the 6.5x284 RCBS resizing die? Is it that easy to resize the neck from .284 to .264? Is there any other brass prep or procedure I should follow?

Thanks for the help guys!

Other than the case streching and possibly the neck thickening the only issue might be the shoulder angle. Not sure if the .284 shoulder angle is the same as the 6.5-.284 Check it and if not quite the same load at about 90% and it will fireform.

its the same i have been checking around to verifiy what i was already pretty sure of resize trim if needed and fire form to your chamber, then use as normal. the .284 win brass can be a tricky bugger to buy at times since its not a currently chambered round the production of the .284 brass is "seasonal" so depending on who you deal with to get your brass you may have to look a little more at certain times of the year, but i am sure there is a lot of it out there since companies like norma hornady and lapua make 6.5x.284 without even thinking of resizing.
