    I'm wondering if turning the shrink fit holders down might make the bores open up.

    I might try making extensions and Loctite the cutters in. Maybe add some small setscrews along the flat for good...

    That was my thought as well. But it would at least get the case pretty close to its final capacity, and create a much larger area of shoulder for headspacing.

    Worth a try, I'd think, if you've got...

    Some of the criterion heads I've used don't have the bore for the bar on centerline, and if you install them so the dial reads normal they drag on the heel.

    If you can cut it off square, chamfering the bore with a countersink (just break the edge) will let it run true enough on centers.

    Dialing it in and boring them might be a bit better. But you...

    Not many things are.

    What problem are you having? One of the 3 mags I've been using has given me problems. Otherwise it's been flawless. Too muzzle heavy for me though.

    I've got a pic of an 80gr bullet in a 223 that ran into a cleaning rod. I'd rate neither one victorious. The action survived to fight another day, with some work to the bolt face.

    Curious where you got the 1000 psi number. I've heard estimates of 5 to 10x that. An article I pulled up shows measurements of near 5k for a 223 in a 24" barrel.
