    I would give RCBS a call.
    You might even need to send them a drawing of the chamber.

    They used to be very good at this.
    They have a wide stock of dies that allows them to select multiple steps ...

    Anything that changes the length of the lever arm will alter the torque reading.
    Even a straight extension that is at an angle.

    A problem with measuring at the firing line is that it is a only a single point in the trajectory.

    I like shooting over grain crops.
    You can look at them and see the 'waves' in the wind across...

    I am not sure tapered threads have all that much more thread engagement.

    Most threaded joints have only a very few actual threads engaged.

    Sealing against pressure is not the same as thread...

    I am satisfied with my NEIKO 03714A.

    I purchased and then gave away a TEKTON 1/4 Inch Drive.
    It only measured in one direction.

    Not worth the trouble in often cramped places.

    Gloves and long sleeves are a bad idea around rotating machinery when it is in operation.

    It they catch the glove can rip off the skin.

    "Machinery's Handbook" has excellent explanations of thread function.
    Both calculated and 'rule of thumb.'

    Typically only a few threads in any mechanical connection are taking

    Very nice as long as you do not accidentally screw up the temper when grinding.

    You can salvage overheating HSS by running it though the typical heat, quench, temper routine.

    Say what?
    Of course the hardness can be manipulated.

    Sometimes it is easier to soften it up to make complicated tools, and then then harden it back up.
    It hardens just like every other decent...

    Diamond hones have come down in price enough to make them a 'standard' tool.

    Totally agree.
    Carbide is made with sintered particles of material.
    Its 'grain' structure when compared to HSS is markedly coarser.

    It also requires a 'tight' setup.
    The slightest movement can...

    HSS is available in an insert format for some grades.
    Sort of the best of both worlds.
    An insert that is HSS.

    We used to make receivers and transmitters that had a stack of slices.

    Did you harden and temper the HSS tools?
    It makes a huge difference in their life.
    The availability of diamond surfaces for sharpening hardened
    HSS tools allows very fine edges to be created.

    The grain in carbide, a sintered material, is also far larger than the atomic spacing in HSS alloyed steel.

    Lighter weight equipment often lacks the rigidity to adequately support carbide cutters....

    As long as there are gaskets made of flexible material the seal is NOT hermetic.

    You need a hard metal to metal (or similar hard material) to create a hermetic seal.

    The correct screw on ones are better.

    Carbide only works well when you have a solid enough setup to take deeper cuts.
    HSS is more than adequate for typical gun work.
    Carbide lives and dies by heavy cuts to remove heat in the chips.
