Default New toy arrived 7mm TCU

The barrel arrived this afternoon.
Looks to be in great shape.
Took the rear sight off and mounted a Nikon 2-8. Silver isnít the best match but it is what I have available for now.
Redding dies got here also.
My first plan was to make brass out of 223 using the neck sizer but when I took the dies apart for cleaning, I found the sizing ball in the full length die is nicely tapered, unlike that in the neck die.
I didnít know if I could swap the recapping rods so just went with the full length die for sizing.
Put a bit of Imperial wax in the necks and RCBS on the outside.
First couple were a little stiff as I forgot to lube the die after cleaning it.
The rest sized with no issues and I couldnít find any neck splits.
Using Hornady brass as that is what was available locally on short notice.
