First Barrel Chambered!

I did the first chambering job. Reamer worked great. It seams to cut pretty evenly. I know that no reamer ever cuts perfectly uniformly on all flutes, but this one did very good. Took me about 1hr to do it. Dialing in the barrel was not as hard as I thought it would be. Perhaps I am getting faster at this. The finished chamber looks quite smooth. No scratches or chatter marks. Having flood coolant is such a joy and makes chip control a lot easier.

Sadly I cannot exactly finish headspacing this until the resize reamer arrives. That will be easy as this is a Savage. Seating die is next.
