INSTRUCTIONS

The Brownells Revolver Chamfer Tool Kit was designed with the assistance and cooperation of noted professional pistolsmith, Ron Power, whose
many years of building some of the finest PPC revolvers in the U.S. brought
invaluable experience and expertise to the project. Until the introduction of
this Kit, tools of this type were almost impossible to obtain commercially,
and even the most proficient pistolsmiths seldom had chamfering tools of
such excellent design and high quality for use in the modern revolver. The
forcing cone is a very critical and sensitive area that greatly affects accuracy and reliability.Very little has been written on how to correct the problems
that are directly traceable to faults in forcing cone design or function.
With these very detailed and complete instructions - plus the Brownells
Revolver Chamfering Tool Kit and the other accessories - you can now make
forcing cone work an important part of the service you offer your customers
and a profitable part of your operation. You’ll be very pleased with the results you can achieve.
NOTE: We urge you to read all of these instructions carefully and thoroughly, prior to doing any work.You will be dealing with a critical area of the
revolver; there is little room for error. Be Careful!

THE FORCING CONE
FUNCTION AND SIGNIFICANCE
Although forcing cones are found in one form or another in almost every
modern breech-loading firearm, it is of no importance whether the revolver
is singe-action, double-action, .22 rimfire or .44 magnum. The forcing cone,
or barrel throat, always functions in the same manner and is extremely important to the safety, reliability and accuracy of the receiver.
The forcing cone is located at the breech end of the barrel, immediately in
front of the cylinder. It can be thought of as a “funnel” or internal taper at
the beginning of the barrel. The function of the forcing cone is to guide the
bullet into the bore after it has left the cylinder. The forcing cone may vary
in length up to 3⁄8" or more, and the angle of internal taper may range from
less than 1° to 45° or more.
Modern firearms manufacturers employ some incredibly sophisticated
and advanced production techniques. But, it is still not financially practical
to produce a revolver in which all six chambers of the cylinder align themselves perfectly with the bore of the barrel under all conditions.As a revolver
is used and develops cylinder/frame wear, the alignment of the individual
cylinder chambers with the barrel bore deteriorates. Under certain conditions, this misalignment can progress to a dangerous condition.
Extreme cases result in the cylinder chamber being so far out of alignment with the barrel bore that the bullet hits the side of the barrel as it
leaves the cylinder. It then “skids” into the bore and continues on down the
barrel. This condition results in very poor accuracy.

In some instances, part of the bullet, especially lead bullets, will be forced
from between the cylinder and the barrel. This is often referred to as “spitting”or “shaving”lead.It is dangerous to the shooter as well as to bystanders.
As you would expect, the potential accuracy of a revolver is greatly diminished, because the bullet is deformed prior to its entry into the bore. Also,
bullet weight is no longer consistent.
Firearms manufacturers developed the forcing cone as a means of compensating for cylinder-to-bore misalignment brought about either by wear
on the various parts of the mechanism, or by inconsistency in the manufacturing process.
It has only been within the last few years that the significance of the forcing cone as an element of revolver accuracy has begun to be fully realized.
The growth of revolver competition, and the demand for greater accuracy in
revolvers, has played a major role in focusing more attention on the forcing
cone because a well-designed and constructed forcing cone allows for the
smooth entry of the bullet into the bore. The goal is to have minimum bullet
deformation which, in turn, will lead to greater accuracy. A properly constructed forcing cone aids in minimizing lead buildup or “leading” in the
bore.Again,this causes less bullet deformation,more uniform pressures and
contributes significantly toward greater accuracy.
