Form .257WBY Brass From .270WBY Brass

Same case, just different diameter projectiles.  Doable?  Worth it?

Thanks.

Bad idea if you have both rifles.Will work great if you only have a 257 and a lot of 270 brass.
Sorry... Yesterday was the last and final day for any and all complaints whatsoever.

I try to avoid temptation unless I can't resist it.

I have found .270wby brass cheaper.  Is it as simple as running it through a resizing die?  I only have a 257.

Thanks for replying.

Lubing the neck will help. Just run thru your 257 die.
