    ??? forstner tool ???

    where do I find this forstner tool I hear about being used to hollow point ammunition? I checked on amazon, and only came up with a lot of router bits. I think what I saw was a small tool that looker like a little hand turned lathe ( best way I can describe it) is it a gun/ ammo specific tool, or is that not really what it is made for? thanks a lot-Travis
    P.S. am I spelling forstner right?

    I think this is what you are looking for. Took me while to find it since it is under case prep.

    Yep, spelling makes all the difference.....friend of mine needed a new winch for his truck, I told him to google search and he could "price shop". He called me later (some choice names lol) wanting to know why I would do such a mean thing to him. With his wife looking on, he searched for "heavy duty truck wench price", he and his wife were not amused at the search results, particularly the "image results".
    An old Cherokee was teaching his grandson about life. "Inside me two wolves fight," he told the boy.
    "One is evil - he is anger, envy, greed, arrogance, self-pity, resentment, lies, false pride, and ego. The other is good - he is joy, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, generosity, truth and faith. The same fight is inside you - and every other person, too."
    The grandson thought for a minute and asked,"Which wolf will win?"
    The old Cherokee replied, "The one you feed."

    Heavy duty truck wench would indeed produce some odd results. Really had a good laugh at that.

    I don't know what they did or what search engine they used to get those results. You peaked my interest so I just tried it w/ Google. It automatically corrects to "winch". And even when you tell it to search for "heavy duty truck wench price" it brings up truck winches. They must have been searching for "wench". The eighth image is my favorite

    If you gotta ask the price you surely cannot afford it.

    Don't think that would unstuck my truck very well, and maintaince costs would quickly become unamusing.

    I once was searching for a new battery powered drill and went to put Home Depot in the search bar. Problem is I missed the M in home. Hit the enter key and OMG it wasn't what I expected. Usually not a problem ,however my 6yr. Old step son had came into the room just prior to hitting the enter key.
    Talk about scramble for some shutdown buttons. His eyes lit up and his face got red. How was I not supposed to laugh at him. Probably because he went yelling to his mom , he's looking a naked women mommy!!! Oops LOL. So I do sympathize with you. - CASTER

    I ordered one from midway. I found out it dosent fit in an rcbs trimmer. I am going to just match up what ever drill bit fits the tightest in the trimmer chuck n roll with it.
