The case must then be fireformed in a 25-06 chamber with a mild load to form the 25-06 shoulder angle. Small charges of pistol powder topped with corn meal can produce an even shoulder. THe necks are plugged with wax. Keep the barrel clear.
Corn meal. You learn something new every day.

Thank you MattS. I have an RCBS lath 'thinghy' with collets mounted on a board that I have just pulled out of a box in storage and just need to get at it. I do things in stages, and am now resizing (neck) all my 30.06's. In a few days I will be back to the 270's to 25.06's, and begin trimming them down to size.
