A wildcat cartridge is a cartridge that is not commercially loaded by a major ammunition manufacturer, but could be loaded by a specialty or contract reloader.
Taming Wildcats: How To Design & Fabricate Custom Cartridges. Is one of AGI’s courses, taught by custom gunsmith Fred Zeglin, renowned cartridge designer and builder of the well-known Hawk series of cartridges, will get the viewer on the road to a thorough understanding of Wildcats and Wildcatting. Great material for any gunsmith or do-it yourself-er who want to make the tools themselves.
One doesn’t need to be a master machinist or tool and die maker to be able to turn out the blank resizing / forming / chamber reamers on the lathe; a tool post grinder is not needed. A bench grinder with a good fine grinding wheel and some practice will, with Zeglin’s expert and easy to follow guidance, will enable the viewer to turn out reamers that will equal anything one can buy! Talk about self reliance.
This video is a valuable addition to your library if you want to know how to design and build custom cartridges, reamers and reloading dies. It provides detailed explanations and demonstrations.

Micrometer Reamer Stop$30.00
Precision, repeat-ability, and ease of use: these are the benefits of P. O. Ackley Micrometer Reamer Stop. Now you can do production runs with your Chamber Reamer, without having to index each workpiece axially. You’ll be assured of consistent headspace, chamber after chamber!
To set up, insert your Chamber Reamer shank in the Reamer Holder and tighten the two set screws. Then insert the reamer holder into the Stop Cylinder assembly (micrometer threaded Stop Cylinder with .001″ Adjustment Nut, Lock Nut and optional Plug Nut). Make a rough cut in the chamber (leave about .025″ extra material). Now, with the reamer bottomed in the rough chamber, move the Stop Cylinder assembly into contact with the work piece and secure it to the Reamer Holder with three set screws.
You can now adjust the depth of the finish cut in increments of .001″, or even less. The Adjustment Nut is marked with 25 equidistant markings around the circumference, each of which corresponds to .001″ of axial adjustment. By backing off the Adjustment Nut and re-securing the Lock Nut, then repeating the cut, you can zero in on your specified headspace measurement. Adjustments of .0005″ can be made with confidence.
We recommend use with our floating reamer holders for best results, with this rental.
