    Fire forming cases over coffee

    Fire forming cases while drinking my first cup of coffee this morning.

    It is creating an interesting smell.

    Who thinks I could get one of those fancy candle companies to do a line of candles for folks like us?

    Coffee and gunpowder, bacon and diesel exhaust, Butch's and oil...

    Maybe this will turn into lucrative cash flow to offset my shooting expenses!

    That is true, especially the bacon and diesel scent.

    I have 100 220 Russian cases neck turned, and loaded for fire forming, getting ready for The Nationals.

    I do it out back of my shop. It's just one of those things you gotta do.

    Adding Creamer

    Josh,

    I can't speak for all, but it have found that by adding cream to your coffee, you will get a tighter radius at the body to shoulder junction of the case upon fire forming.

    That will make YOUR shoulder to neck junction looser. Won't affect the case at all.
