    My reamer is a 308 Win Match (min SAAMI spec) but throated for factory ammunition (no turn neck)


    Its produced some stunningly accurate 308's

    The reason i asked is because anything firearm related and the states can be a pain but hay if not then all the better for me.
    Are your reamers fixed pilot ? Where would you recommend to buy it from and go and no go gages

    No, I use live pilot and have pilots in .0001" increments.

    Reamers from PTG, Manson, JGS or Hugh Henrikson

    Buy the gauges from the same manufacturer.

    The Hendrickson reamers are worth waiting for, but are costly and take a while to arrive.

    I mainly buy from PTG

    I use PTG reamers as they are easy to get hold of and work very well. As per Redmist I tend to get match reamers where ever I can.
