Grizzly Adams' Reformed .348 to .45-75 Brass

"Grizzly" Adams of New Mexico offered to convert some brass for my .45-75 and I took him up on 10 pieces to see how his method using the CH Tool tapered expanders compared to my ad hoc method using expander dies from the .375, .429 and .457 cartridges which I had on hand. He was able to return the cases to me very quickly and they arrived Friday, May 25.

I must say that, before fireforming, his cases are neater in appearance and with smoother necks. They also seem to be more concentric. Next step is to fireform all the cases and trim to final length. I'll let you know how these cases look after fireforming.
