Re: Reaming 223 to 22-250

The drill is faster than the boring bar for most.
The boring bar is faster than the reamer for most.
The boring bar washes away the sins of the drill getting off center.


So many people, use drills, then the boring bar, and then the reamer.

I thought that I thought of that until I read that Ed Shilen said that earlier.

    What's the hurry ? As chad said use one tool to chamber(The reamer).

    Speed can be the enemy when it comes to gunsmithing. Quality takes time.

    If you have the finest of tools and plenty of skill you can do a chamber job faster than
    with a lathe but using a drill or a boring bar or both will normally lead to a poor chamber.

    Speed is the reason that I won't use a pre chambered barrel for an accuracy weapon.
    the only reason speed is important is to increase profits of production barrels not accuracy.

    The smith that coached me said "If you dont have time to do it right the first time, When
    are you going to find time to fix it".

    Using only a reamer works for me and works very well. Each person has their own way of doing it, my way just seems to be the same as many

    I would assume that Ed Shilen does it for the same reasons I do it.
    Saves time.
    Saves reamers.
    More concentric than just a reamer.

    here is a 223 rechambered to a 22-250ai and was cut with just a reamer. cleaned up very nice and as long as you set it up correctly you have nothing to worry about. I am happy with my results and my customers are very happy.
