I have begun setting aside money for one of BT's 30 caliber swage sets. When I have enough saved up, I intend to get the tools to make 180 grain .312" jackets from 5.56 brass. I have around 100 lbs of fired blanks set aside for this project.
Does anyone have an idea what length to cut the brass at for this project?
I am just trying to get a jump one of the less enjoyable steps, prior to getting the dies.
