As I recall, you grind the D bit under half on the order of .001 per .5 inch of diameter. I have made reloading dies this way. You can find cartridge dimention's in some of the older reloading manuals, such as speer. R. Johnson

Rem. bolt alteration

How hard would it be to fit a Savage bolt head to a Rem. bolt? I don't have a Savage bolt to check the internal's.

Re: Need gasket removal hints

If you have a Johnson-Evinrude dealer close by, see if they have a can of gel-seal & gasket remover. This is intended for aluminum parts. This comes in a spray can, so protect your eye's. This stuff really works, and is fast.
