    I bought some Winchester 7mm-08 brass because of all the negative reviews on Remington's 260 brass. Can I just run this through my full length RCBS 260 resizing die or do I need anoth step in the process?

    I haven't done it.
    But you very likly will have to trim to length after you neck it down.

    Other then that, it should just be a simple sizing operation.

    I use Federal 308 for my 260. I small base size the 308 then full length for 260. I use Redding dies that have the ball changed to carbide. A quick trim and I'm done.

    Necking up Winchester .243win brass would be an easier path.

    But Lapua's .260 brass will be out very soon.
