reloading steel cases


Active Member
turns out its easier than when i tried. i put water in the case and ran it into the die to get pressure. messy.

i also drilled out the "built in " anvil in the steel case. that seems easier than this guys method.

and one more thing, he says lube, i say extreme lube before sizing.

and this vid goes along. taking out that pesky anvil.


What caliber are you reloading?

I once reloaded some WWII steel 45ACP cases. Everything worked as if it was brass cased, but I only did the one reload.

Thanks Tiger, this was very helpful. We have a bunch of brass berdan primed .303 british that I've been trying to figure out how to convert/reload.
