Well this may be a little of the subject but me and the midget, I meand BJ, jsut got back from shooting this evening.
he damn near beat my record at 400yds of .850" in a 3 shot group. His first 2 shot was just a 30 cal hole and as he went to fling the 3rd shot i felt the wind kick up. He was shooting from my truck bed and couldnt feel the gust. this kicked his shot about 1" to the right.
We didnt measure it but the group would have been around 1.5" at 400yds, if i complained about that I would have to kick my own @$$!!!!!!!!!
Kirby I think you may need to build me something like this gun so I can protect my range records!!!!
Oh, by the way Kirby, the pistol shootin went a lot better [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Making a die with the same reamer that cut the chamber would do nothing. The die must be a smaller diameter to resize anything.
[/ QUOTE ]Note that Kirby mentioned making one, but as long as the chamber reamer went just far enough into a die blank from its bottom that touches the shell holder such that it's wall diameters would be a few thousandths of an inch smaller than a fired case, its taper would sure match the chamber's taper and be close enough to fired case body tapers to hold a fired case perfectly for neck/shoulder sizing.
Bart, my guess would be if you only ran the reamer in far enough to size the cases down a few thousands diametrically,you'd be bumping the shoulder back a whole bunch more than most would want.
i like the forster full length with the neck opened to whatever you want.in my case, .003 less than the loaded round and position the die so it only bumps the shoulder 2-3 thousands.close but still loose in the chamber.one of the great ones once said for best accuracy they have to fit like a turd in a toilet bowl.or some kind a bowl!
