    Zero freebore?
    Anyone have a better mouse trap for this?

    I tossed around the 20P and decided against it. Just don’t want to fool with another wildcat. I looked in my supplies and I have enough brass and bullets to wear out a barrel.

    I’m sure Greg Tannel has one,he does throating as a separate operation and likes zero free bore for most small calibers.Kevin Weaver has a list of all his reamers on his website and Kevin’s claim to fame is that he will buy a reamer for your project if he doesn’t already have it.Both are in Colorado and both really like killing varmints with small calibers.

    Long rifles Inc lists a 0.09 freebore reamer for the 204 ruger. My last 3 rem bolt builds(local smith) I had Manson reamers made, has worked well for me. Rifle chambers are exactly what I want.

    The reason I ask was the 204 doesn’t seem to mind any jump, at least the two I have don’t, CZ and a Savage.

    So with zero free bore, then with shooting over time may still give useable service after the throat wears? Short of heat cracking issues of coarse.
