Q. I have one of your carbide Hand Held Outside Neck Turners (HOT100). It kind of looks as if the carbide cutter is backwards for blending the cut into the shoulder of the case.
A. The carbide cutter is correct. The leading edge of the carbide has a 20 degree angle to enable you to get right up to the point the shoulder starts. The amount of “blending” will vary depending on the angle of the cartridge you are turning. It may blend more on one caliber than another depending on the shoulder angle. Always be cautious when turning. We recommend that you do not cut into the shoulder of the brass. Turn only the outside diameter of the neck.
