    Cream of wheat fireforming

    Has anyone used the cream of wheat fireforming method? Normally I jam the lands with the bullet and fireform, but with components being so scarce, and the price of 338 and 375 bullets, Iím going to give the COW method a try. Any tips or tricks, recipes, or experiences would be greatly appreciated.

    I have always done the JTL method personally. I get not wanting to waste pills, but if it ain't broke don't fix it.

    I'm a JTL guy, (or double shoulder if I am down sizing brass) as well, I am interested however in alternative methods.

    I sized one piece of 30-06 bras up to 358, then started sizing it back down to 338. I stopped when I could close the bolt all the way, with moderate resistance. Iím hoping this will become a 338-06 Improved.



    I thought I would have to size more of the neck down, but it fits, so what the hell. Iím only going to .do 5 at first. One with 14gr unique one with 15gr one at 16 one at 17 and one at 18.

    I got my cream of wheat / unique test loads made up. I did one at 14, 15, 16, 17, and 18gr. After I shoot them, I will compare and measure them, if any are good I will load the rest up with that load.

    Well. My first attempt at cream of wheat fire forming was a fail. Brass barely formed at all.



    From left to right, 14 15 16 17 and 18gr of unique. Back to the drawing board.
