Can I make 7mm-08 brass out of 6.5 creedmoor brass by just running it through a FL die?

I don't believe so, at least not easily. The 6.5 CM is a shorter case with the shoulder farther back. Some form the 6.5 from 308 brass but that seems like a waste of time with all the CM brass around. You may be thinking of the 260 Rem, which is just a necked down 7mm-08. Easily expanded up to 7mm. and I believe the same shoulder. Someone correct me if I'm wrong. Didn't take time to look up the drawings.

Just run .308 brass through your 7-08 full length size die and load them.

As noted, you'd have to fire form as the creed shoulder is pushed back from the 7-08. You could neck it up to 35 and then size with a FL 7-08 sizer giving you a false shoulder to fire form from but thats a lot of work when you can get 308 brass fairly cheap.
