    Placement is everything. The crown should be at the roundest, tightest place in the barrel.

    That is very easy to say, and very difficult to do.

    It would be easy if all barrels had a nice taper...

    Apology To Mark Penrod

    One of the reasons I started this thread was to show off Mark Penrod's workmanship on a pic of a crown he sent me.

    Somehow in my feeble mind I confused Mark Penrod"s name with Brian Voelker. The...

    Dennis,

    Which chamfer are you referring to? If it is the one in the barrel bore, I would suggest you always break that edge. A sharp edge can be damaged easily.

    Tim,

    You are right, I haven't seen the tool made by Ross Sherman but I do have one made by Pacific Tool and Gauge. My tool uses the same pilots that their chamber reamers use.

    I agree with GsT. I've seen some really nice crowns done with hand tools. I've always been against the type that have a pilot that goes up inside the barrel and you turn the cutter by hand.

    But...

    Barrel Crowns

    Barrel crowns are not often discussed on the forums. Perhaps they aren't important and don't need to be discussed?

    But since we cover them up with our tuners and other muzzle devices, I wonder how...

    It would be very difficult to get accurate readings.

    I find I need everything held in place so the only thing that moves is the indicator.

    Measuring Pin strike depth

    This is a way to measure pin strike depth. There are many others, but this is the way I do it when I have fired cases to work with.

    Jerry,

    There is a lot of truth in what you said. You are right where does one go to get a good quality stock to build a 10.5 lb. rifle?

    Damn Jim,

    You make me feel lucky as I sit here unable to eat hard food and living off of liquids and baby food. But hopefully this is only temporary.

    Since we don't know the depth of Jim's chamber, we have no way to know why his doesn't engrave the bullet.
