    Just a simple question I'm having a hard time finding an answer for. Why bevel the outside of the mouth on your case? Thanks.

    If you're referring to de-burring, it's just that- to remove the burrs left by trimming so that they don't interfere with smooth operation.

    -As far as I know, anyway.

    BTW- Welcome, and howdy on your first post!
    :)

    Agree, burrs could hang up in your chamber if not removed.

    Hey there. Thanks. Ok I see now. You don't need to debur it if you didn't trim it. There's nothing to debur. Thanks for your answer.

    Smooth operation and keeps them from flaking off and ending up in your actions. Dont like metal bits in my lever guns.

    Object is to de-burr, not bevel.

    If you over do it i.e. bevel it will lead to split necks
