I load .310 gas check cast bullets into .308 cases with no assistance beyond a good chamfer. A Lee "M" die helps, but I have never bothered to get one.

Regular Hornaday .30 cal gaschecks work fine. They seat properly on my Lyman 150 gr rn bullets and crimp in the .310 die. I use the Hornaday .32 cal gas checks for the 8mm
