Halloween, Thanksgiving, and then Christmas! Time is flying, and it is that part of the year when your better half is looking for gift ideas. This is a reminder to start hinting!

I'm not so sure I want to start swaging for .257 cal, as you can't reduce the mid-body diameter like on my Bob's Boattails to reduce bore drag on the (typically long) .257 cal rounds.... In addition, the ram needed to make boattails has to have a 0.015" rim to make it strong enough to avoid breakage and cracking.... and that means a large step down behind the rear of the body.... That was the big change I made in my new Bob's Boattails, reducing the depth of the rebate step, to aid in reattachment of the flow on the boattail.... That change appears to have made a significant improvement in BC and stability....Bob
