Re: turning and reforming brass
I made a tapperd sleve that was chucked up in the lathe, the shell casing presses into the sleve, just lightly tap the case, it will not move. Then there is a cut out for a small screw driver to fit into, this acts like an extractor to remove the caseing. I made a wildcat for a customer, he wanted to make a 338 mag for a short action rifle. We took 348 win cases, turned off the rims, cut an extractor groove, improved the case to a 40 deg shoulder, short fat case that fit into a Rem 600 action. Made a heck of a mountain rifle. Velocity was equal to that of a 338 win mag, non belted mag case. Sound familar? I only made one of these rifles, too much work making the cases.
