Re: New build: powder burning on and above case shoulder
Ken you pretty much nailed it. When I cleaned off the shoulders, I could see the brass wasn't formed smooth. I shined a light down into my chamber, it of course looked as rough as my brass. So it went back to the smith last week. He said the reamer must have chattered. So he is setting it back one thread. I must say I'm a bit disappointed in my smith. I make mistakes too but, I don't see how you can ream out a chamber and not even look at it before you install the barrel. His brass from when he test fired must of looked just like mine. He is making it right but he said he would have it ready for me last Friday, when I went to pick it up it wasn't done. He said it will be done today, I'll call first before driving out there again.
