Here is a better one. I am thinking about this for my Desh project.

I have junk like that in my pile -- you've looked at some of them in your past visits. One more time -- if I or anyone with a standard SAAMI dimensioned reamer touches your gun -- you will have the same as you already have. Its the nature of the beast.

The only way you can change the dimension is with a custom ground reamer.

I see what your drawing in your pictures and I or Lothar Waltar can not change what you want. The reamers cuts only whats in front of it. If I were to cut a chamber half way -- stick a dummy round in it and measure it --- you would have the same distance from the bullet to the lands as it will when it is at the proper depth. There is no way for me or any gunsmith to change the dimension you want without a custom ground reamer. I can't afford a custom ground reamer and Devil Dog got sick of waiting -- after 6 months he canceled his order.

Thanks Dimitry. Usually I edit out bleepers but I like to laugh at myself sometimes and every time I see this I do. Glad you enjoyed it.

I wasn't looking to be Mr Right -- I just needed you to understand the limitations of a standard SAAMI reamer. That only a custom ground tool can change the front dimensions. As far as I know you have the best of the best from Lothar Walthar.
