RCBS reamer

Post by yumastepside » 06 Dec 2018, 6:29 am

Does anyone have, or know of someone who has an '06 RCBS reamer?

Any 25-06 ,6.5-06 , 270 or 30-06 RCBS , 28 deg. shoulder, improved reamer would do as I want to re-cut my 8mm-06 to the improved version to match my 6.5-06 RCBS.

It can't be that hard to make a reamer?
Do you have the chamber measurements to allow somebody to machine one for you?

I have made my own single use reamers in the past for Martinis and real oddball wildcats, but a good reamer is not a simple thing to make and as I want it to match the one I already have it needs to meet certain standards.
Why make one when theres one out there somwhere.?
If worse comes to worse I'll buy one out of the States.

Is 28 degrees the shallowest shoulder angle they may for an improved 06?

Not sure...... the RCBS 28 deg. shoulder angle, being less than the Ackley 40 deg. angle, is supposed to feed better than the squarer shoulder of the Ackley improved.
