That's a pretty good video but he makes it more complicated than it is. I bought the little Harbor Freight chop saw a dozen years ago when brass could not be found. The only real issues I recall is just making sure you camfer the case mouth a bit after you cut them and use lube on the cases, they form really easy. I used mixed range brass and paid no attention to brand. Clean and tumble the brass before you start and do a large batch at one time makes sense.

The key is to not have any cases too long as they will cause problems, if they are a little short no big deal. I use the Lee factory crimp die on them and it solves a lot of problems also.

I had no problems forming them or with reloading them. I have both 300 pistol and carbine. Nice low powered round, much like the M1 Carbine, not much noise or recoil and fun to shoot, even more so than the 223. I prefer 110 grain bullets but load several and shoot them suppressed most of the time. Enjoy.

I used 5to make my own 300 BLK cases when you couldn't buy them. Now its a lot easier and not that expensive to just buy already made brass. I still have the Harbor Freight cut off saw and the know how if cases become unavailable again.

there was some dies made for the dillon trim die setup.
kind of wish i'd bought one when i seen it, but i simply just bought a few-K cases.

anyway one pull of the press handle and out pops a 300 case.
