.308 brass can be reformed into 6.5 Creedmoor brass using just the 6.5 size die and neck annealing ,oh you will pooch some pieces but it will make .308/7.62 X 51 (the parent case to 6.5 Creedmoor) into 6.5 Creedmoor cases .....

Check with Graf's - but Brass like ammo is in short supply and very expensive now. Graf's did have once fired and Peterson brand brass last spring. Any brass I am selling for the local gun club now goes for .40 /case or so- what I used to buy loaded ammo for. I have sold out pretty much all the brass we got from the club events this year .

Ok thanks you all, I will look into re forming some of my .308/7.62 brass. In the future if you come across any brass please let me know as I need about 100-200 pieces as it is for my bench rest rifle as its new and have no brass. Thanks Dennis also.

Might take a look at my post on reforming .243 brass to 6.5 Creedmoor. Yes....308 is a parent case,but youi will damage more of it than the .243 cases because ot the sharper shoulder slope on the .308. My method was a single sizing in the 6.5 die and cutting the neck which was extended about .125. Test fired successfully in a bolt action rifle. The extractor groove of the .243 cases might have to have the edge beveled for better purchase when chambering,as it tends to bind a bit,,,but still chambers OK. A cartridge head space gauge is critical for proper sizing prior to the final cut off.
