I've never had a problem.

Mostly because you can find 270 Win brass in WalMart (the ones that sell reloading stuff anyway)...they only have the common sizes.
I know it can be done...but am curious if anybody has done it and at what length it ended up after fireforming.
It's better than Remington brass so you will lose less of your life prepping cases, sorting cases, and have less throwaway brass that is just plain junk. If your options is forming Remington or buying Nosler I'd pay the $ in a second and buy the Nosler.JD338":3fjdy2w3 said:And FWIW, although the Nosler brass is expensive, it is better than R-P brass so you will get longer case life.
