Re: Help Educate Me on First Wildcat - REAMERS required for the project?
You might ask whomever you plan for finishing your barrel & dies.
For my last wildcat(26WSSM) I bought roughing, finishing, and sizing reamers(from Pacific).
But the gunbuilder I used didn't use the rough reamer(he drills instead).
My reamers were floating with a 10 bushing kit.
There are a variety of approaches and favored tools though. Some prefer to cut the throat with a throating reamer.
It is worth it to hold your own reamers, and I think it's beneficial to have 2 barrels finished at the same time. With my last barrel swap I did not have to change a thing with my brass or load. My brass didn't chnge in the new barrel, the load held, and I don't FL size.
But might have been a bit of luck on that one..
Also be sure to have a headspace gizzy cut from the barrel stub.
I had wilson die blanks(seating/NS) chambered at the same time also. Then I had JLC Precision make me a bump die from fireformed brass.
