Sorry, its lathe work you need, anything less is crude work.

Kwillias1876, I didn't mean to sound snippy. I just don't have access to a lathe. I appreciate your suggestion.

Baltimore Ed, thanks for the information, but I have already trimmed the Jamison cases to the same diameter as the Winchester 45-70 cases. I just want to reduce the Winchester case rim thickness to the same thickness as the Jamison cases. But I will check the toggles.

I wrestled that bear with my 1876 NWMP 45-60 Carbine. Some cut down brass would chamber, some would cam over and some not at all. My bud tore it down and with the toggles only installed on one side it chambered everything, on the other side it wouldn’t chamber. We messed with the toggles on the tight side until that side chambered everything too. Didn’t remove much metal at all. Runs fine now. I would check your toggle links one side at a time before cutting your brass. Good luck.

You might be able to make a mandrel with a snug fit in the case mouth and mount it in a drill press. You could use a file to trim the rim, measuring often. Maybe. I did something similar to reform .45-75 cases from .50-90 cases.

kwilliams1876, I don't have a buddy with a lathe or I would do just that.

I don't want to take the metal off the head stamp side. I want to take it off the edge of the rim toward the case mouth side. any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Do yourself a favor and find a buddy with a lathe. With a collet set up you could trim a bunch in no time flat, and they would all be precisely the same.

Never done it myself but I've read several times in this 76 forum where guy's will use a belt sander to thin down the rim. Must be careful not to take too much so as the primer to stick out too far.

I did a search and could not find any information on how you guys turn down the 45-70 case rim to the size needed for the 1876 45-60 rifle. I can shorten the cases no problem, but I am having trouble figuring out how to turn the rims down. I don't have a lathe. How do you guys do it?
