What Would You Do...?
If you had ordered a reamer made to spec, spent lots of time waiting for the rifle, and when you finally received said rifle, after shooting it measured your brass to find it was much larger than it should be? Sound like a nightmare?
My first ZKK-602 in .375 H&H wasn't unique enough, so I mailed it off to a fellow in Prescott AZ to be rechambered to .375 Weatherby about 4 months before Weatherby actually brought the chambering back. So I get the rifle after waiting four months (a record), and when I pulled out the first fired case, it had two shoulders; guy didn't shove the reamer in far enough. Mailed it back, got it back after another four months (yeah I know), and it wouldn't shoot worth a damn. Sent it off to another fellow who told me the the receiver was "twisted 0.060". I am guessing it is torqued between the bridges. Okay, I set that one aside.
I found another unfired ZKK-602 so I order a finish reamer, because I want a tight chamber, and a 0.401" neck plus making the freebore 0.135" instead of over an inch in the original Weatherby. Takes three months to get the reamer, and another 13 months for the rifle. I shot it last week. Hmmm...the fired necks on my Weatherby cases measure 0.405". That isn't all, measuring the base above the belt and the shoulder show my rifle may have been chambered with a standard reamer.
I need to get to my storage to get the reamer that is in the guncase, and make a chamber cast of this thing to be sure.
To say I am sitting here feeling disappointed is a monumental understatement. If it is the reamer, I know I will be getting the reamer I originally ordered, and I'll get it damned fast too. If the 'smith used a standard reamer nothing I can do there, gunsmiths don't have any money. But as to the rifle, who'll be paying for another rechamber, can it even be done? Man I am bummed. It seems someone doesn't want me to have a ZKK-602 in this cartridge.
