Default Chamfer 45acp cylinder

Have S&W625 thinking about chamfering the cylinder myself. Does not seem too difficult. Any input would be great.

As long as very little metal is removed it should not be a problem.

Be very, very careful. I don't think any of us have to tell you that if you screw it up your gonna have to replace the cylinder. I'm not sure but I think a new cylinder costs more than paying someone to chamfer it for you.

Do the job very slowly and in very small increments.
