Now that we’ve cleaned, sized, trimmed, and finished the basis brass prep steps, it’s time to sort the brass that we’ve prepped so that we can uses batches of consistent brass for precision loads. We are now at the final stage of brass prep as covered in the brass prep overview post.
For this stage, we’ll use the Redding Case Neck Gage (Redding #26400).
Here’s a video showing the process of using the Redding Case Neck Gage to sort some once-fired 7.62×51 brass that I’ll be using for the AR-308 project:
Now that we’ve wrapped up brass prep, it’s time to move on to the next steps in the precision loading process. I do enjoy this kind of loading. With all of the precise tools at hand, some times I feel like I need to put a white lab coat on- kind of fun.
Stay tuned- we’re going to have fun finishing these loads!
