Re: I'm done with football and basketball, for good...

I never did watch organized team sports and especially hate bassaball. #defundsports and put em out of work.

For racing I like Speedway Motorcycles, Hard Enduro, Trials motorcycle and World of Outlaw Sprint Cars. And of course local mud bogs and truck pulls.

I reamed the inside of the case necks today with a .406 reamer. Probably the reason the bore is so good because no one could find ammunition to fit it :lol: I would think if you’re getting .411 bullets to fit with no issues then it was likely reamed out at some time in its 100 plus years.

Good info guys. Yes I already have a 38-40 Lee FC die.I assume the crimp problems you guys are talking about is from a roll crimp that pooches the case mouth out and interferes with chambering . I have used a collet closer setup in my lathe that gives a very nice crimp.
