Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

MAS 36 reloading

#1 Post by Mike Sr » Wed Aug 30, 2017 7:48 am

I tried reloading for my 7.5 MAS 36 without buying another die set. Since I only have one rifle in this cartridge, I used my Lee 308 neck sizing die with a flat washer slipped over the brass after putting it in the shell holder. Just use a washer that is close to the length difference of the two shells.It worked perfectly and the rounds I made shot great. I did't shoot this rifle very much before I tried to reload. It will be in regular rotation now.

Awesome! I used to do that with my 762x54r brass using 303 dies to "neck" size. Ran into trouble when the brass stretched to the point that it wouldn't chamber.....ended up breaking down and buying the Russian dies :D

Do you have any use for commercial French 7.5 brass? I've got a box or maybe two boxes of once fired brass. So 20 or 40 shells.

If the OP isn't interested in that brass, I would be!
