Ordered my first reamer !!!

Well, I took the plunge and ordered a reamer from PTG today. I ended up getting a 270 WSM .310 neck and .180 freebore for shooting 150 Bergers and 169.5 Wildcats. I also ordered a grizzly range rod so in a short time well have some amatuer barrel chambering happening at my place!!! Do they sell barrels in a six pack

The folks at PTG were supper great to deal with and answered all my questions and patient with this novice!!!

Great!!

It's not rocket science but you do have to be careful and very particular.

Every one started with one reamer and a lot of apprehension.

Be careful and have fun.

The first one is nerve racking, but take your time and dont rush it. also remember that cutting fluid is your friend and you cant put back what you take off.

Kinda sounds like the measure twice and cut once advice, which is hard for me I kinda have to resist just laying into it.

What kinda stuff do you guys use for coolant, I've seen several different options from high pressure coolant that looks thin to a heavy oil just dabbed on when you pull the reamer and clear it.
I was thinking about making a flush from the muzzle set up, I can get the rotary coupler for cost and it looks like a good way to go. Any opinions would be great!!
