Drilling flash holes.

Is there any advantage to drilling the flash holes any larger? I shoot a 300 win mag with 200gr. and up bullets.

Re: Drilling flash holes.

There's not necessarily any benefit to drilling them larger - the benefit comes from making them consistent and centered.

Having consistent primers behind consistent flash holes means having consistent ignition shot to shot...
