      I necked up some new 22-250 brass to 250 Savage. As fate would have it I just picked up a 22-250 (didn’t have one when I necked up the brass) and I fell into some factory new 250 Savage brass. Should I be able to neck it back down without overworking the brass?

      short answer yes, but if it was fired in the 250 Savage I would anneal just to give the brass the ability to have a longer life. But would not really be required

      I would definitely anneal the brass before another change, but I agree with Sarge.

      Definitely anneal, might have to turn necks as the brass won’t swage back down uniformly.
