Hi Loius, no it does not handle the max loads so well and yes, necks can be too thick. The Practical generally likes to be run fast so if you can, choose a tough brass such as Win or second to this, Hornady.

Re: norma brass for 7mm practical
Nathon on the subject of neck thickness. I like to turn my necks so that they clean up about 3/4 around. with that said, using redding neck bushing die that won't size all the way to the shoulder, would I be better of turning the necks when they are .308 before sizing. Once again Thanks for all your help.
