    Anyone making 308 bullets from 5.7x28mm cases?

    I find some of these cases once in a while. They are very very easy to size down to .308.
    I'm wondering if anyone is using them to make .308 projectiles with them.
    It seems like it would be very very easy.

    Yes I do, as well as many others. I use a Corbin setup - others use a BTSniper setup to swage them.

    See this link, post #25 of pic's of BTSniper swaging .308 bullets from 5.7 Brass (The bullet on the left - the two on right are from 9mm Brass). https://castboolits.gunloads.com/sho...mm-brass/page2
