RABBIT HOLE ALERT! RABBIT HOLE ALERT!!!
Somehow I just knew that you would find another high dollar must have piece of machinery to sell us on!!! Nice find!!! But no!
Some say ignorance is bliss. Maybe you just don’t like to be informed? 😊
When I tell you it is a must have item, then you can assume I’m trying to sell you on it. Otherwise, I’m just posting stuff like that to keep folks current.
At one time I seriously considered getting the equipment and learning how to ream a chamber. After watching the process I decided it was one of those learning curves and investments that was going to detract from my devotion to shooting time. It’s a skill that broaches on an art to produce a masterful job. I will leave it to the pros and concentrate on the finer points of reloading. 😊
Next time I have to shoot against him I'll offer to seat his bullets LOL 😂I would trust ya Dave. 👍
I could do the same for you to at the Rendezvous Jerry
So, I think I'll do one more round of quantitative field testing before I move to the final arbiter; the target
I wanna play with this equipment!! Great job Chris.
Sorry if this is a dumb question but, if I shoulder bump first, then neck size with a Lee collet die, how can a doughnut form? I realize the collet only squeezes the neck but the mandrel itself goes into the case past the neck-shoulder junction; I'm thinking the doughnut would get expanded by the mandrel.
You are not going to move brass up or down the neck with sizing (FL, bushing, or mandrel). The sizing will however move brass laterally (in or out). Chris I agree the collet die mandrel should move the donut out, just like any mandrel should, but I don’t believe the collet puts enough pressure at the neck shoulder junction to move it up or down. The whole purpose of cutting into the shoulder during neck turning is to give the donut brass a place to move into when the case is fired in the chamber. If that void or cut space at the shoulder neck junction is not present, even though the collet mandrel pushed the donut out, it is going to come right back inside during the first firing because the chamber neck junction forces it back in. Gotta have a space for it to move to.
Robin we are all going to be pulling for you! Go get em’ !!
It would be cheaper for me to just buy new brass. Lol, like 180 batches of it!!
I'm not saying it's a bad machine, just expensive.
Classic if you build it, someone will buy it.
I would go that route too if anyone made necks that were perfect out of the box.
