Got the reamer in today. Figure it'll be either a Good Friday night project or Saturday project. Planning on using an extension instead of the t handle. I have a bore guide thing cleaning rifles. It has a piece I can slide off. Took it off and the extension fits nicely thru it and the piece fits down into the action. Would any of you that that have hand reamed have an issue with that. I'm trying to take up slack so I can try my best to stay straight.

Sounds reasonable but all the hand reaming I've done has been revolver cylinders.

Should work OK. I just used a T handle on mine. Be sure and use a good cutting oil on the reamer. Cut slowly, maybe one turn at first, and check length. Takes longer, but slow and steady wins.
