  • Modified Rifle Sizing Die Project Completed

    I came across an old 222 Rem sizing die, of unknown make, that was pretty soft steel. I decided to make a bushing type sizing die out of it that would work in a press.
    I bored it out and inside threaded it in the lathe, then I turned and threaded a plug to hold the bushings in place. I then turned and bored bushing to various sizes. It works very well.





    221 Rem Fireball to 20 Fireball to 17 Fireball to 14 Fireball .. Just by changing
    bushings.

    Nice idea, You still have to fireform in your chamber and check for concentricity and shoulder axis deformity right?
