    Andy, just re read your post, looks like you are well on the way to getting rid of the flaring, I hope you were hitting the brass with a stroking motion toward the open end not just bashing at 90 deg to the axis. by drawing it forward you loose some of the extra metal into length that can be trimmed back to a marked line at the correct length. did it with a 120 bat case a long while ago and it came out ok

    Thanks 2pounder, Yes i done some more today and yes i am hinting it with a stroking motion its nearly there, i might try putting a hardwood former in the case and spin it in my wood lathe and try and press the last bit out.
    cheers
    Andy
