Every once and a while this old dog needs to learn a new trick.

Back when I faced and chamfered muzzles in the 90s (with great results, BTW), the in thing was to face with a 90 cutter, crown with a 79 deg cutter, and then chamfer with a brass hemispherical hone and valve grinding compound. The one-caliber kits from Brownells had these three tools.

The brass hone seems to have been replaced with a 45 degree cutter in recent years as the chamfering tool of choice. What are the advantages of each and how should I use the cutter?
