A gauge pin was then inserted into the barrel bore and indicated concentric to the lathe spindle axis.

The reamer was then plunged to the desired chamber depth.

The barrel was then flipped around and the crown was cut using the same technique.

Now I just need to trim the barrel ramp back a little.

Operating machines is perfectly safe......until you forget how dangerous it really is!
