    St Louis is just 2 1/2 weeks away.........

    St Louis is just 2 1/2 weeks away.........

    CYA friends:

    The biggies are just 2 1/2 weeks away..................

    There's a lot at stake in St Louis this year, more so than usual.....


    The Club matches, where a bunch of folks don't use their best stuff, which I don't blame them, are over come St Louis.

    At St Louis, if you got it, bring it.............

    PS:

    CYA friends, I'm posting this here, out of the way....on purpose....

    What is one of the main reasons I've produced over 100 Big National event wins over the years?


    This British film below is from the 1930's............

    Look at this film from time 8:00 to 8:30.........

    Chamber finishing with a hob............that's how you produce finished chambers capable of winning over 100 Big National events, just like the rollers in this British film from the 1930's.

    Backing up, allowing someone else to be the winner...

    Backing up, allowing someone else to be the winner...


    CYA friends:


    I just came in from the range and saw some match reports from St Louis.


    I remember one time a shooter was ahead by 375 points with one card to go.


    And backed up enough to get beat.....on the last card.



    375 points ahead.......................


    And backed up enough on the last card to hand another shooter the win.........


    The other shooter had to be saying to himself, " I won?, you're kiddin"?......."I was 375 points down going into the last card."




    The shooter who did the backing up and gave that win away:


    It was what it was......



    He just swallowed right hard and looked in the mirror.......

    Greg Davis:


    Greg Davis will never get over going into the last card at a major RFBR event, leading by 375 points, then backing up and allowing the 2nd best shooter to win the thing.



    But, it is what it is....


    I bet Greg hopes it never happens to another RFBR shooter at a big time event.

    Chamber finishing

    Are you saying you used a Roll-a Finish burnishing tool for finishing the chamber and lead?

    They produce very accurate sizing and mirror finishing and I am guessing but I suppose if the angle ground on the rollers at the start was the same angle as the lead then it would get burnished at the same time as well.

    As a point of history Henry Ford introduced Roller burnishing tools for final sizing of the cylinders in the Model T.

    No.


    Here's a picture of the hob I used to use......


    The current reamer I use, rarely now, is slightly different than my old standby, so the hob no longer fits.


    My hob uses the same "Clymer style" pilots that my Manson reamers use..


    Dave Manson normally uses the thin walled pilots held with a screw, like most reamer grinders, but, he will furnish his reamers with the Clymer style pilots, if requested.

    I like the Clymer style pilots because they're so easy to make.






    Would a roller burnisher work for a rimfire chamber, is a related aspect of your question.



    When I first read your post I thought, no.


    But then I got to thinking, if the rollers were shaped so as to burnish the chamber and leade together, the part of the roller that burnished the chamber would act as a pilot for the leade, since the roller section at the leade would be rolling on an interrupted surface....


    But as I thought further, would the part of the rollers that burnish the leade, since they work against an interrupted surface, influence the part of the rollers that finished the chamber, causing the leade pattern to be reproduced in the chamber itself?


    And then I thought further.......


    For a .225" diameter chamber, the rollers, along with their supporting cage, would be unbelievably tiny.


    So could a roller burnisher of that size actually be produced, without it costing a fortune?
