    Moderate success! Shooting went off without a hitch. Primers were smacked just right, the air smelled like burnt cream of wheat and I had to shake a bunch of crap out of the barrel after three rounds. One case neck split. The other two came out well. Time to hit the reloading press again!

    I guess it would be worthwhile hitting them with the torch before loading the next batch for fireforming.
    I've done a bunch just with a torch, holding them in my fingertips and dropping them into water.
    Not the most scientific, but I had good luck with it, and I don't think you're really going for 1000 yard groups.
    Not yet, at least
