    If you really need the brass and have lots of .223 or 5.56 (or any brass with the same head size) you can form 7.62x25 from it. Good way to reuse any cases with cracked necks/crumpled shoulders/etc.

    While it is possible, its a heck of a lot of work.

    You have to cut it off, then size it ro make the shoulder, then trim it, then neck ream it.

    Because a .223 case wall is way to thick by the time you squeeze it down that far.

    Actually, I make a lot of them like RC said and I find it to go pretty fast. For the cutting, a tube cutter is the best in a Lee zip trim. Then a bit of champfering and onto the Forster trimmer with a neck reamer loaded in it. You end up trimming and neck reaming at the same time. Then a bit of champfering again, and walla, good brass. I do have a bunch of the Starline brass, but have been using these instead.

    Starline

    I bought 500 new unprimed brass from Starline.This was about 18 months ago, long before things went crazy.I find the 7.62x25 not easy at all to load.I have had adiffacult time getting good data.I have been using the Lee data that comes with the dies and AA#9 powder with Hornardy 90 HP's.

    Just buy the 30 Mauser brass. As long as you're not loading +p it will work just fine. I use 30 Mauser and 7.62x25 brass and loads interchangeably in my C96, CZ52 and Type 54.

    ive had no problems with the starline brass. ive done the 223 brass thing and the base of it is smaller than 762x25 base. i use 110 fmj or 115 lead with titegroup powder and have wonderful results

    Granted somewhat old thread but did you ever get your brass? I found some I never knew I had (Starline Brass) from when I was on a CZ52 kick years ago.
