    a 300 wsm die would do the job too.

    you can just use your eyes to see when to stop pushing on the handle if you use a pistol die to neck size the cases.
    unless your blind, which would explain the initial purchase.
    it's all an educated guess,,,, till the trigger is pulled.

    this opinion brought to you by mister low-tech solution..

    The shoulder will stop the case from entering the die past the neck.

    I shot some good .303 British shells the other day that I loaded using 7.7 Japanese dies last year. Neck sized nicely and fit a Lithgow last year and a BSA this year. I wonder if I should even buy .303 dies?

    Of course,a really simple method would be to smoke the cases and slowly move them into the die.
    Good luck.have fun.Be safe.

    Find a reamer and run it into the die until it fits the chamber.

    Again, this neck sizer will do from 308 to 300 win mag, inside diameter is large enough that your "improved" 7.7 case will not be touched at the shoulder, size the neck only and expand with an M style die. It does come set up for .308 diameter bullets, inside sized and expanded diameter of .3055, you could change the expander button for a .303 Brit one if you wanted to. 28.00 and all your problems solved for bubba! hopefully?
