    rfd,
    I took the delrin oring ends off the baco wipes and put them on the gophers before I found neoprene washers and nylon nuts and other that adding a little extra length they worked fine.

    JDNC, i thought of doing that, too, but then decided to sell them rather than cannibalize them

    plus, the components i use for building brent's gophers work extremely well and are cheap enuf.

    I checked to see if I could use a 30/06 FL die tomclose down the mouth but the case wont quite go in. I also tried a Dillon 45acp taper crimp die. It will just begin to enter the die but I haven’t tried it yet. I might have some other die to try and I’m still looking. Haven’t given up yet.

    In ref to the bore gophers, are you wetting just the front felt or both?

    all gophers go for a swim in plain tap water, and after a shot is taken one is plucked out, shaken (but not stirred), pushed past the chamber, then a dry arsenal patch to follow, pushed out the muzzle into a pan of plain tap water.
