    Calvin, my bet is that your 2.5 would be ideal for Danny.

    Harrell just shipped me a die that would fit

    sent 2 fired brass to Harrell and they got back to me yesterday saying they managed to fit a die according to my chamber. Only took a week after I sent my spent brass, fast service. Meanwhile, a competition buddy measured his fired brass after I mentioned my problem and his measures .330" and he claims his chamber neck chamber is also .330". I don't know but I'd be surprised his fired brass neck OD is the same as his chamber neck size. His chamber neck must be bigger than that. The more it goes, the more I believe there is a more than one so called 30BR chamber mesurement. Can't wait to try out this Harrell die.

    There have been a few different 30BR reamers made over the years. But I believe there has only been 2 Official Robinette style reamers . His Original and now his revised JGS version but I could be wrong.

    As was said

    And Randy will say it over and over. There is only 1 Robinette reamer until his latest version #2. Any other reamer is NOT a Robinette. Many people have come up with there own versions. They may have used some of his print and then made one or 2 changes. That is NOT a Robinette. I used Randy's original print, made the recommended changes reading some of his posts, talked with Al N, made 1 more change and sent it off to JGS for a reamer. It has my print number to it 30BRCY. No reference to any other reamer.

    If and when people have issues with sizing, if they have not used a TRUE Robinette reamer that is a good possibility. Yes, there are many 30BR reamer designs. If the guy that is doing ones chambering says he has a good reamer, what does he mean by that? What is good to him? The guys that play around the competitive circles are the guys I would lean to first. Not saying all, but there are those who have a reputation. Die to chamber fit is so crucial. It took my dealings with 2 fellas to really understand that.

    Harrell die question

    Just got Harrell 30BR die that's supposed to fit my chamber. No details came with it. Bottom has 'B2' stamped, there is a .330" ID brass bushing attached to the outside of the decapping/mandrel pin ???.
    Question: Are Harrell dies Bushing dies ?

    Yes they are

    Bushing dies. And the brass so called bushing is a gauge to use for measuring shoulder bump with your verniers. Slip it over the neck and measure before sizing and after. Be careful on the fired primer if you have some cratering. I measure slightly off center of the primer. Size down to the feel you want on bolt close and Mark that measurement down.

    The 2 on the bottom

    Refers to a Harrel #2 die. That means it will or should squeeze the case 2 thou.
