    Only change I would make is to buy and use bulk (5gallon) brake parts cleaner instead of acetone or alcohol. That is a very good list. What powder and bullet are you using to get that big bull? YES SHOOT A LOT!!!

    Good,pics. Yes the fire formed case conforms to the chamber. It has to change shape. It,will also fit just one gun.

    Man...that's a lot of work and moving parts--Ya'll shake a chicken leg over the brass before you load 'em up?:)

    How many people clean their brass after every firing?

    I have heard that a little carbon inside the neck helps prevent bullet weld were as a polished neck inside encourages it is that true

    H-1000 300 grain AB. Spindrift, Cosine of shooting angle, Coriolis effect, shooting direction and wind all play a factor. Here are some pics. A group at 1000 yards, my shooting bench is my farm truck on a spare tire, you can see the targets at 600 and 1000 yards if you blow pic up.

    1. Get my once fired brass during break-in
    2. Deprime and throw in wet tumbler
    3. Anneal using my AMP annealer mk II with aztec
    4. Full length resize using bushing style die and Sinclair Mandrel die bumping shoulder 2 thousandths
    5. Trim using Giraud Trimmer to 10 thousandths off Max Case Length
    6. May or may not throw in corn cob media or walnut for that extra bit of polish.
    7. Prime
    8. Charge cases using my Autotrickler
    9. Seat bullets using Whidden bullet seater w/ bullet specific stem (buying 21st Century Hydro Press in near future.) Using Forster Co-Ax for precision loads. Dillon XL 650 for bulk loads.
    10. DONE.
