Got my chamber reamer a few days ago.Pacific tool and guage does excellent work and the reamer was priced inline with all the other shops that make them.I need to purchase a couple more tools and i will be making cylinders.

Been away for awhile, i have the pistol to the point of test fire which i will be doing this weekend.
I have a photo of the cylinder being bored under size prior to reaming the chambers here:Image
I don't give out much info on this process as i have a friend who does this for a living.I guess you could say we have a gentleman's agreement.

Thank you for the pic. I could ask a lot of questions, but I don't want to publicize your friend's trade secrets. I totally understand that issue.

I must say that your equipment looks way too clean. :lol:

The super spacer is brand new, a wide angle shot would have shown the old index mill that it is bolted to, the super spacer is worth more. :D

So, I am revisiting my pistol after some time away, I ordered a 500 grain mold from you today that will fit my cases, I am looking for 11 to 1200 fps max, should be no problem. This will give me a practical pistol with plenty of knockdown for what I hunt, or in other words, my theory and desire to build a big pistol is fulfilled.
