Anyone handload for this old war horse? Using .268" dia. 160 grain round nose bullets from Hornady. What is an accurate recipe? What do you do for brass? One site talked of making boxer brass from berdan using a flat bottom drill #4 (.209") so that it can bottom in the primer pocket; then hand ream to .210" & bore a central flash hole with a #50 (.070") which coverts the Berdan brass to Boxer type. It warns that you are thinning the depth of the web. Advise? I have handtools to remove a military primer crimp and primer pocket uniformer. Thanks!
