    Chamfering Cylinders

    The carrying of revolvers for CCW seems to be popular. I have noticed a number of comments on reloading revolvers with speed loaders and problems with hangups on the cylinder lips.
    The cure usually results in a trip to the gunsmith and leaving the weapon until he can get to it. The other alternative has been expensive cutters. I think I have found a cure. The below linked cutter from Midway USA is inexpensive at thirty dollars and does a good job on the task. The more 38/357 revolvers you have to do, the greater the savings. About ten minutes work with due care and reloads slip in like goose crap through a tin horn and the modification is almost invisible. One tip I would give is to use light downward force on the first turn or two to prevent the cutter from gouging and sticking.

    Great idea.
    Ignorance is a long way from stupid, but left unchecked, can get there real fast.

    Interesting. I've been carrying Lever Revolution rounds in my speed loaders as they seem to almost load themselves. I have a lever .357 abd had them anyway...gave them a try in my loaders and BAM.

    I have never had any problem with projectiles hanging up, if I come close to hitting the hole. The problem came from case edges hanging on the edge of the cylinder chambers. Some ammo has more of a rolled crimp and is little problem, others, there is a significant case lip exposed. Chamfering eliminates the need to be concerned with the type of ammo is being used.

    Makes sense...I've never had any cases hang up either. Guess I've been lucky.

    Do not dry fire 22's period unless you use snap cap devices,even autoloaders will have the firing pin indent the chamber lip which causes misfires

    True, just with the firing pin hammer you have to fix the hammer too. You would have thought the guy before me would realize once the firing pin started looking like a mushroom...
