Lube the case up good, including the inside of the neck, and run that sucker through your .284 die.

I'd anneal afterward. Not saying that you have to do it, just saying that I would.

Come on, shooting a 6.5x284 in a 7mm is way more exciting than simply resizing it.

I used a K&M expander like this.

But just running thru a 284 die will work too

I'll bet is IS! There is such a thing as "too much of a good thing," though.

Just neck up the 6.5 brass to 7mm, and you're good. Lube the inside of the neck, and push it over a 7mm expander ball.

The ones saying run it though a 284 die are assuming you still have an expander on your stem. I'd buy a 7mm expander.

HH, I'm with you. I thought that was why the old GulfWax used for sealing jellies was originally made. bolt
