6.5x53.5 Dutch & 8x50/52r Siamese
Does anyone have any expirence making cases for any of these three cartridges? I guess my question specifically is can 6.5 dutch brass be made using 6.5x54 M-S dies, then fire formed, or do I have to spend the money on the RCBS 6.5 dutch dies? Secondly, I know Siamese cartridges were always formed from 45-70, but with the availibilty of boxer 8x56r, would that be a better choice? Thanks for any help fellas.
