Re: New 6.5 Idea
Thanks, for answers. I've been thinking on a similar project to make a cartridge able to fit in the standard Howa action. I've been thinking of making a forming die with a double radius shoulder, like a Weatherby but softer radius's, to make the flow of brass a little easier. Also thinking of having it nitrided for less friction. It's been an interesting and informative thread.[/QUOTE]
I also did a similar thing and would have to agree that I don't think the radius idea would work, JMO. I talked to Mark Spencer at Spencer Tool and Grind, he made me a FL die with seperate bushings that had progressively steeper shoulders. Still had to anneal the shoulders down a little bit, but after that, they worked really well. You can find his web-site on-line pretty easy. I would defenitely recomend him for something like that.
