It is a good option, if your gunsmith has a reamer that fits your sizing die well then not so much.
If using multiple Gunsmiths then getting your own reamer that matches your sizer die will ensure you get the same chamber cut for each barrel. This assumes you will be re-barrelling yearly/regularly, or have multiple guns in that calibre.
If buying a reamer I would recommend looking at .268” or .269” neck dimension if a PPC using Lapua brass.

Are you looking for new or used die?

Congratulations Hugh on your win, good competition this weekend.
Great to see the out of town competitors, sure helps raise the competition level.
Another well run match made it fun to be a competitor.

We will be there, should anyone need any supplies let us know by Wednesday and we will delivery to the range.

Congratulations Dwayne on your win, I forgot how much mirage can happen at the Selkirk range.

Calvin thanks for the pictures and I look forward to coming and shooting there again.

Congratulations to Joe on your BRSC Nationals win, well done.
Thank you to the Mission crew for hosting the Nationals on the weekend.
It was good to see everyone that attended, and welcome to some new folks to the group shoots.
Hope to see you again soon.

Hi Brent, we have one new one in stock.

It is time for the last of my accounts of the event at Rosebud.
The weather conditions were sunny and windy with all the switches you could every want while shooting.
The 200 yard 10 shot event while is optional had less shooters involved then the previous days, but the competition was still very high, Peter Smith from Canada finished 2nd, well done Peter.
The shooting was completed but the work is not over, shooters have to pack up all their gear and guns for the trip home, Tony and many more volunteers have much work to clean up, remove the amenities used during the week plus of hosting the event.
I can not say enough about the effort that the target crew, security, range officers, the kitchen crew and organizers have done to make this event the success it has been, well done all.
Congratulations to all the shooters and teams for attending this event, and making it a World Class Event.
The awards ceremony will be held tonight to cap off the event.
One last thanks to all the folks that came to be spectators at this event, great to see the number of on lookers.

The two gun portion of the event is done, as you may have seen in the other posts, Team Canada 1 had a very successful day winning the team event in the LV-200 today. Well done gang, love to see a plan come together.
It was a very rainy and cool start to the day, with some light winds in play, if you had the patience to wait for the let’s great groups could be shoot.
Jack Neary shot a nice .110” early in the day with some else shooting a .114” group, this at 200 yard, now that is some kind of shooting.
Target crew had it rough in the conditions but did a stellar job though it.
By the last match the rain had stopped and temperatures started to rise, hoping that the forecast of sun and mid 20 happens for tomorrow.
Tomorrow is the 10 shot group at 200 yard event, this an optional participation shoot, so some competitors will opted out.
For the most part I feel that this event was a success and the organizers and volunteers did a bang up job in there roles, thank you for your time and effort in making this a successful shoot.
2020 will be a qualifying year for the 2021 WBC match in South Africa, so make your plans to to participate in group matches to gain point towards making one of the Canadian teams for this event.

The HV-200 has been completed, it was a very cool day with many shooter finding our supposedly summer weather not to their liking. At least it did not rain to dampen the event.
Things ran smoothly throughout the day, with only a couple of hick-up.
We did see some pretty good shooting with medium intensity and twitchy winds all day, as a shooter you had to pay attention to the flags or get blown out of the group.
Again without belabouring the subject, Walt Berger shot well and is really helping his team in their standings.
The Canadians contingent is coming on strong, looking to medal on our home turf, keep going gang we are rooting for you.

Day 2 HV-100 is completed and the shooters had a real taste of the conditions that Rosebud can throw at you.
Temperatures were down and most needed jackets, the winds were pretty strong throughout the day with the usual switches.
When I talked with Jari Laulumaa before the match started, he said I like the windy conditions just like home, he proceeded to go out and win the day, I believe he had the only teen agg. of the day, well done Jari.
We continue to marvel at Walt Berger, he finished the day with a nice .122” group on the 5th match.
In conversation with a few shooters holding off 2-3 rings were required on some groups, not for the faint of heart for sure.
Everything seem to run smoothly as Match Director Nancy Scarborough had things well in hand.
There was a lot of assistance in moving the target frames and backer to 200 yards, flags have been set, so as the saying goes, 100 for show and 200 for dough.
Conditions are not forecasted to be any better tomorrow so the worlds best will have their hands full with the added yardage.
We continue to see some spectators coming out, Greg Mowatt, Dave Fisher, Henry Remple, Trevor Phaff and many more spent some time at the event.
Follow the standing on other streams.

Sorry for the delay lost my post due to poor connection.
The first day was an interesting day, the wind was light and twitchy making for some tough shooting conditions.
Open ceremony got the day started, should be picture out there by now. Commence fire started before 10:00, and the LV100 warm-up match got the shooting started, there was the first 1st screamer shoot in it.
The conditions had several screamers shot and groups over one inch.
We had a several Canadians place well on the first day, hope to see all of them get things going.
Larry Ottman joined Bob, Graeme, Vic and Tyler on the firing holding down the Range Officer duties.
Darrell Skinner has be assisting with the security and transportation duties.
With any match the target crew plays an important part in the success of the event, with 4 relays and bench rotations being part of the match they had to be on their toes, good job by them today.
The target measuring crew was Keith S., Paul Ross and Mark DuMont, only 4 more day to go boys.
Due to unforeseen issues Tony Boyer had to withdraw from the match, Captain Walt Berger stepped in and did extremely well, I believe he was in third place after the third target.
Jeff Graves from the US was the day one winner and who said LT-32 can work.

The last day of practice has concluded in spite of some wet conditions early and late in the day. It was the official gun weigh in day with Scott Stevens and Mark DuMont handling the chores, well done guys.
Target frames and backers are up, flags have been set, so the race begins tomorrow. Opening ceremonies will start at 9:00 am and shooting start by 10:00 am.
The meet and greet happened tonight as part of the social participation of shooters and spouses at the west end Sheridan Hotel (several teams staying there) and it was a good time.
One of the questions MC Bob Richards ask was a show of hands based on age groups, and surprising the 20 year old group had a number of participants. Great to see in a sport known as a gentlemen (older) sport.😉
Walt Berger was asked to say a few works at the event, and as always some sage word were spoken.
The spouses are off to Banff tomorrow on their events schedule, they should have a good time there.
I was able to tour Steve Minckler from Vancouver Island around the facility after the afternoon downpour, it was his first visit to the Rosebud range, hopefully he can make it back to shoot with us.
As has happened each day, the volunteers from the club have been on site assisting in the kitchen, garbage removal and security. Lloyd Gilmore has been on site with Tony Gauthier to handle the night time security, for the last week, it’s a thankless job but thanks for handling it.
Looking forward to tomorrow’s start, good shooting to all.
Remember to check the web site for pictures of the proceedings.
