    I've had good results with a soda can folded over for .44 and .45 gas checks. I cut a strip kinda wide, fold it over and mash the fold flat and put it where I'll have the finished check where it won't fall apart.

    My explanation is kinda rambling, but you'll catch on sooner or later.....

    Did I ever mention that I hate to trim brass?
