Default 30-06 brass

I am going to purchase some -06 dies for my grandpas reloading press, and was wondering, will i need to bell the cases? He does it with his 44's just curious about the -06

Lee is decent. They are good for what they cost.

My personal experience consists of molding my own round ball over a fire and knowing a couple loads for the 45-70. Lol
Happy to help

You shouldnt have to bell the case with jacketed, sometimes with lead depending if your using a gas check or if the bullet is oversized (most lead rounds are slightly)

I have a Lyman press and a set of Lyman 30-06 dies I would sell for about that price...
