    For loading large volumes of 308 I do have brass that is mixed head stamp and they are all sized the same (to fit a 308 case gauge). You do have to trim and my loads I mix brass with are at the low end of mid range.

    Same here. Size, trim, load. Mixed headstamp. Unless I'm competing for money, nothing gets sorted.

    Thats good to know. i do the same thing with midrange loads in handguns, but rifles are significantly greater pressure. Thanks guys!

    Likewise. Mixed nato 7.62 and commercial .308. If I want to load for accuracy (haven't yet but will shortly). I'll start using just the LC brass I have, otherwise it's all mixed.

    I use mixed brass for my M1, loaded on a 550B, a progressive is the only way to go for semiauto rifles.

    What about sizing? I hear alot about 'rolling the shoulder back'. I gauge every round i make, and after a standard full lenght resize, the brass gauges fine. Something crossed over from BR shooting, ot am i missing something?

    All the 308 i have loaded so far shoots fine, but i don't want to screw up viable brass.

    That is all you need to do.
