f you can't find any have you considered just reforming some .308 brass?

I'm having to do that for the .260's cousin, the 6.5 Creedmoor. I'm tired of waiting for Lapua's small primer 6.5 CM brass so I'm getting ready to reform some new .308 Palma brass. If you do this, be sure to anneal and have a Neck Turning tool.

I will soon be making some. 260 remington brass from 308. What is the benefit of neck turning vs neck reaming? Will either work?

I run a 260Rem. One thing to think about before turning/reaming is to get the Neck OD after firing to get your chamber'ss neck measurement. This is important when forming 260Rem from 308Win brass as depending on your chambering you may or may not need to turn/ream (even on 260Rem stamped brass). For example, Lapua 260Rem brass is too thick for some chamberings whereas I'm running a special chamber which does not require neck turning with Lapua brass

As far as turning or reaming, I just turn as once the expander ball pass through the neck, the inside of the neck should be concentric.
