Nice set of tools for sure. Never thought of taking it that far before, If you turn the neck, not sure how thin you would go before being concerned with tensile strength on holding the bullet. I believe that someone here had a post about the effects of crimping/non crimping the bullet had on accuracy as well. so since i dont crimp my rifle rounds anymore. My concern would be on what may be lost on this neck thinning would have on how well it holds the bullets in place. I have a bolt action which may not effect it at all. but my ar15 slames those rounds home for sure. I have not been crimping with the ar15 and the accuracy is still great. I have cycled these non crimped rounds and remeasured them and had no movement in bullet seating at all. my rounds, have just a slight amount of room in the magazine to function, so there isn't much more i can extend the bullets out too. If i thinned out the neck, would i get the same results? Nice video by the way and tell your friend at G and S, that i have been telling people about getting their engines rebuilt there, for sure. The customer service and workmenship on engine rebuilding was excellent thx Robert

Rob, The average brass neck wall thickness range between .013" to .016". It varies from brand to brand or even lot to lot. All I'm doing here is removing the high spot on the neck... usually no more than .0003 to .0005, so it doesn't really affect the integrity of the brass.
