Guess what? They are all beveled. So no solution there. So, until someone decides to make quality cases for this caliber I'm stuck with downloading everything to mid range loads to prevent the brass damage. Too bad, since I was really hoping to get much better performance out of this than my 223 loads. Looks grim, at least for now. Guess I'm going to put this upper in the back of the safe with the 300 BO, that's somewhere back there, and perhaps sell them both. They would have been better off leaving the rim/head size the same as 6.8 SPC but, even so, the Nosler brass quality probably would have still sucked.

So, Hager brass necked down to 224 has the same dimensions as 22 Nosler brass (sans the rebated rim) and will work in the 22 Nosler chamber using a 6.8SPC bolt? That seems too simple if it's the case. I could just run the Hagar brass through the 22 Nosler sizing die using a 6.8SPC shell holder? God, if that's the case, as soon as this crappy 22 Nosler brass I have all goes south (which won't take long), That is definitely the route I'll take.
