    swapping brass between barrels

    It is actually a frigging curse; not meant to make the rest of the world feel inadequate. One cannot imagine the level of detail, scrutiny and accountability that is involved. It is almost akin to a...

    AI chamber

    Wayne, all of my brand new .243 brass has a crush fit until it is fireformed. I seat the bullets into the lands and use a max. load for the parent cartridge which provides nice sharp shoulders.

    The only reason I replaced the original trigger with the Timney was the Timney was given to me for free. The original trigger was perfectly acceptable. The Timney breaks at 1 1/4 lbs like glass. My...
