30.06 to 7.65X53mm

I'm not new to reloading....but I am new to cartridge conversions.

After watching some YT clips I understand the 'art' of working & lubing the brass in the die(s), but I'd like to know your experience on cartridge conversions. Thanks.

That is a pretty straight forward conversion. Just anneal, run it through the die, and trim to length (I like the Lee case length gauge trimmers for this, although with that much brass to remove a different method would be smart).

Other common (and some uncommon) brass that will work to form 7.65 Mauser; 270 Win, 7x57, 8x57, 25-06, 257 Roberts.
