Default Two Reamed Handis & Max Brass

Reamed two of my Handis this morning ... 22 Hornet to "K" and 357 Mag to Max. (the top and mid one in the pic). Didn't take long ... just under an hour. Can't wait to try them out but there's still allot of snow on my range. I have some 180gr XTP's I'll be trying first.

Natchez has Max brass if anyone's looking for some.

Tim, if you're reading this, the reamers are on the way back to you. Thanks a bunch!

Starline has 357 Max brass too. Let us know how they shoot after the snow recedes a bit.

Thanks, Dinny

180gr is a little heavy for the KHornet!

if you can get it out of the barrel, you might have a nice supersubsonic round

I had a 357 mag ,sent back to NEF before they quit fitting barrels . Very nice tight fitting barrel. I then reamed it to 357 max and to my surprise it shot same windage and 2" lower than the 357. The max with a full load of 296 will shoot 1"+/- at 100 and it is a nice shooting barrel to go with my 30/30 . Fun barrel loaded down with cast bullets and serious medicine cranked up with jacketed bullets .

Well...for what ever reason no attachments or avatars show up on the Firefox browser I use though they do appear on Internet Explorer which I detest and don't use. Must be a solution somewhere if I can just figure it out.

I've never had a detached thumbnail, but did lose a fingernail when I had the tip of one almost severed....

my preference is to always have them attached now too!
