Thanks again Boss for sharing your knowledge.....
Glad you liked it---if it works for one of the best smiths and shooters on the planet then it is good enough for me!!

    I do have tubes just for this that were cut with my match reamers (my competition rifles only)-----still use this method---much faster and makes perfect brass every single time. NEVER have I had one that did not come out Perfect. The sporters I always do 200 which is plenty for the life of the tube.

    Yes---on the rifles with brakes I just take them off like I do for cleaning. You can leave them on--did it that way once because I just forgot.
