    I like green mountain barrels also but on their site right now they are way behind on production due to pandemic. I also didnt see any 36 cal blanks. Part of my reasoning for the 36 cal is 1) less lead and powder per shot. 2) a lighter more svelte...

    several points to consider here is instead of insert tooling try cemented carbide bits and sharpen them to what you need then hone the edge sharp with a fine diamond stone. Light cuts and slower feeds these little lathes arnt very solid. I have made...
