What part number for 6mm back up rod

Recommended Posts

I am needing a part like the one on the right from my 308 conversion except in 6mm. I thought 12070 was the correct part but what I got was the short part on the left.


What is the correct part number to order to get the longer part in 6mm?96b48ac73e4473639f8817853a0ecdbc.jpg

Do you need to swage 6mm cases, or just open the case mouth a little? If swaging, use the 223 backup rod #13332 to hold the case down. To expand the case mouth, the 12070 is correct. This rod is not intended to hold the cae down for swaging, only for expanding the case neck.
