    Tight Neck Chambers.. How much clearance?

    Tight Neck Chambers.. How much clearance?

    How do Ronin, Thanks for that.. you say all round.. just to clarify, do you mean that in a .292 neck chamber, you'd need an overall loaded round of .286? Sorry if I'm being dull, but am approaching tight necks with caution..

    Tight Neck Chambers.. How much clearance?

    Next question.. Now, I'm turning some once fired brass for the new gun, its been F/L sized, trimmed to length and now needs neck turning.. Just setting up the cutter and wanted to do it so that i should avoid doughnuts.. I noticed on some other batches of brass after 4-5 reloads that I'm starting to get doughnuts and believe that these can be avoided by neck turning right unto the neck/shoulder junction.. I've set the cutter up so that there is no step between the neck of the shoulder but am concerned that if i cut too far in, i could get neck separation, which would be a pain in the a**. What do we think? Apologies about the pic quality.. its an iPhone so not so good at macro type stuff..

    Tight Neck Chambers.. How much clearance?

    Thanks guys, great advice, that confirms what id heard from a couple of sources. I'd also heard considerably more than that.. which to me seemed to negate a lot of reasons for tight necks.. also, i would imagine that thin neck walls could be a hazard.. Whats the thinnest people would accept in terms of neck thickness?

    Tight Neck Chambers.. How much clearance?

    How do all, i'm shortly to pick up a new rifle, with a tight neck chamber.. I've shot the calibre a lot before but only with a SAAMI spec chamber. Now that this has been cut with a tight neck reamer, i'll need to turn brass. I've heard varying opinions about how much clearance is required.. I want to be safe but want to get the best from my brass, so what would everyone recommend?
  7. I've got some doughnuts to get rid of and need a .264 inside neck reamer.. Has anyone got one that they can lend me/ hire me or sell me? Cheers, FFM
  8. All gone im afraid. Thanks for the interest
  9. I'm waiting for confirmations to PMs, but subject to them all paying, all brass has been sold. I'll update the thread if any of the potential buyers pull out.
  10. SimonL - PM Sent To all others.. still some available but going quickly.
  11. PMs replied to. Still some available..
  12. Thanks for the question, Yep, all factory Lapua ammo, shot through a factory .243, so no hot loads and all headstamped Lapua
