    I have 3 cases oversized by .008-.009 in a 65.47l. Are they GTG? Maybe just a lite charge to re-form them? What do you think?

    The Norma 6ppc brass is about that short. You have to fire it a couple of times to get it chamber length using a medium charge. I have not seen any problems with the shoulder being fire formed.

    I've done that before. Actually 0.008" bump.
    Like stated above... I just marked them and I use them as foulers/sighters.

    They shot same as the rest.

    I fire form 6BR to 6BRX. They are 0.100" short in the 6BRX chamber. Just shoot them. You should have some jam so the case head is against the bolt face.
