    22 cal VLD heavies!

    Just cut the first die with a new 12.25s secant ogive 22 cal VLD reamer! It is a near match to the Sierra 90 grain match king profile.

    Also cut a rebated boat tail core seat die for it too. I don't believe rebated is any better or worse then traditional boat tails but it looks like it will turn out well.

    Also got a traditional 9 degree 22 cal boat tail that is a bit longer then my standard offerings. This one extends down to a diameter of .155" vs. the previous .187"

    Should make for some very good, heavy long range 22 cal bullets!

    I'll have some pics and updates soon. I'm almost done with my annual burnout of machining a new supply of dies.

    Good shooting and swage on!

    Broke the new boat tail reamer.... only had 4 more dies to go! Got another one on the way. Sucks when you break these expensive reamers.

    ah... I'm good. Tooling breaks. Simply have to buy another.

    I'll have pics before too long of these new bullets.

    Swage on!

    Look out for a old tool and cutter grinder... I just got a surface grinder and a spare T&C for about 2200 in yanky money at a bankruptcy auction... And they were not Chinese junk either...
