I sent smithd1 a pm.

Anyone who wants to rent can pm me and I'll rent for $30 plus $8 to ship. After 5 rentals I'll donate the reamer to the forum if Tim wants it.

Wasnt sure if the hmr extractor would work so I ordered one for a hornet.

Finished the rechamber this afternoon. Pretty easy job.

My only mistake was cutting the ejector lip a little on the thin side. It works fine but will most likely need to be replaced inthe future. A true hung round might bend or shear it off.

Thx Lt for the rental. Will have it back in the mail for you asap.

Range report first chance I get.

Let us know how it shoots. That's the fun part.

BTW, I didn't need to modify my ejectors at all. There must be a little play in the fit to let it handle a slightly larger case diameter.

I think that changing the barrel marking would be easiest to just change the m in .17 hmr to an o to read .17 hor

Maybe do this with a little diamond tip engraving tool. I didn't think of that earlier but that's what I would try first.
