Its possible to have perfect alignment and strip a jacket.

Its also possible for an alignment rod to lie to you since it's riding in the minor diameter of the barrel.

These are not cheap, but neither is a can.

Wow. That's an insane price.

You can get precision ground rods from mcmaster carr shipped to you for under $20 each including shipping. They're like $8 per rod the last I checked. and come in 3 foot lengths. Long enough to cut them in half and sell the others and get your money back. I couldn't imagine paying $75 for a short piece of rod. That's just crazy.

22 cal = .212"
9mm= .344"
45acp= 437"
7.62 cal= .297"
