    FYI on forming 250 Savage brass from 22-250 brass

    Finding 250 Savage brass locally is a challenge. So I bought 100 piece bag of 22-250 brass from Remington. I ran them threw my Lee Full Length dies after lubing them. They come out will a case length of 1.892". The trim to length of 250 Savage is 1.902". The neck thickness is 0.12" and the Winchester 250 Savage brass measures .015".

    It didn't take a lot of force to run them threw the die. I have read where other folks have done it but they never talk about how the brass comes out.

    I ask saved some money. The last 100 pieces of 250 Savage I bought cost me $58. I got the 22-250 for $42.

    I find it ironic that I have to use a wildcat brass to form the parent brass.
    It is introspective, and I want to introspect.

    Me too. Until Cowboy shooters made the .38-55 popular again, the .30-30 was used to form its parent brass.

    The .250 Savage has a lot of taper; the brass might grow in length fairly quickly, I know my buddy's .22-250 did when we were kids.

    .

    Do you think that .002 is going to make a huge difference in length?

    I don't think it will make a difference. I routinely trim to .005 under trim to length with no issues.

    Nope. Just reporting my findings

    I have done the same thing for several years with similar results. The cases will grow and the conversion works just fine. Really enjoy my 99 .250.
