    I made a similar post a year or two ago. I'm not a competitor and just like shooting rifles and hunting. The only lathe experience I had was on an Atlas 618 I was using to make bamboo fly rods. ...

    These aren't my go-to dies. I use them a bit at the range when I don't want to drag the Co-Ax along. I'm doing this one so I can reset the neck tension after pulling bullets during load development.

    I use SS media after fireforming but I still have a couple out of a hundred with stuck COW. I inspect each one and then use the ultrasonic a couple rounds to get it loosened. It's a PITA.

    I cut an 11 degree crown and hit the muzzle gently with a piloted 60 degree cutter. I'd love to see a picture of one of Jackie's tools.
