    remember jon denver?
    Yes, and his crash had nothing to do with any hardware failure. He ran out of fuel in one wing, and the manual fuel switch was located behind his seat. At 700 feet altitude, he reached around to try to turn the switch, inadvertently pushed in his rudder pedal, and dove into the ocean.

    They can be pissers at times can't they? What did you end up at for inside diameter?

    The books say 5.45 has a rim diameter of .394" same as a 9mm......only most of the 9mm I measure has a rim diameter of about .387" except for some German and British WWII cases I measured. I don't have a 5.45 case right now to measure. Measure several of the rims on your ammo and go at least .005" over that and try for .010" like a standard bolt has.

    you may need to dress a little bit.

    the round needs to fit in the bolt square on the bolt face. it is easy to leave a little rise around the edges that won't let the round fit all the way down and square on the bolt. that tiny bit will cause the round to ride up in the bolt--

    my cutter does the exact same thing, i have another cutter that i use to do a finish operation that only cuts that edge around the bolt face to get a flat square seat of the round in the bolt.


    it might be tight too- you'll have to do some specing with the calipers--
