    6.5CM case converted to something larger? Can anyone ID this?

    Like the title says, I found some Hornady 6.5 CM brass that had been converted to something larger. Itís not .308; the neck diameter looks to be .30 cal but the case itself is different than a .308. Anyone ID this?

    6.5 case on left, converted 6.5 case on right






    Added a .308 case for comparison

    Can you measure the ID of the case mouth of the various cases?

    Looks like it could be a 7mm CM case. I have heard off and on about people trying that out.

    Or did they open it up to the parent case of .30 TC?

    I wish I could find 224 Valkyrie brass like I can find this Hornady match 6.5 Creedmoor. It’s almost as common as .308 at the range now

    That Hornady brass is pretty much shit. So soft you get 2-3 reloads and its done.

    Oh, I was thinking a .338 Lapua rival when I saw the 8.6 Creedmoor. Sounds like this more or less an improved .338 Federal.

    It’s really not. It’s nothing but a .338 Federal with a sharper shoulder. Don’t fall for the Q hype. They basically did a Ackley Improved .338 Federal. They were far from the first to play with subsonic .338 Federals.
