    The only hand cannelure tool I have that will do heavy jackets is chuck busters ultimate cannelure tool. I routinely do .050 jackets with it.. But that power tool makes it real easy.. D

    ..it is possible that you have the wrong core seat punch. Try to run just plain lead bullet through the dies without a jacket. Measure those and compare results..core seat will always be slightly smaller than point form..d

    I wet tumble the cores in baking soda and car wash after I bond...once you remove them from the wash, water will be trapped in the hole in center of core. I place all the cores back in pot @ 200 degrees for at least 1/2 hour to get water out.. ...

    I'm not sure about long term affects of core bond on enclosed heating elements.. I've only ran maybe 5 large batches in my kiln. I see scale on the elements.. But that may be normal..I find myself using a giant cast iron frying pan with a lid over...

    R5R..I,would advise against seating core before bonding..they do pop..I've had cores hit the lid of pot even when I've had plenty of clearance to let gases, moisture or whatever escape. When core lets go it splatters lead all over the outside of...
