So where is polishshooter anyway?
That's what I read at first too! LOL
But yeah, I've polished up the pilots for my Lyman case trimmer too (and also a couple of my Lee trim studs that were a bit rough). Started doing that after I turned down one of the larger unused Lyman spares into a 5mm pilot for trimming .204 cases. It polished up so nicely I decided to hit the rest of em with some 1200-grit polish too.
Just be careful that you don't polish them down too far otherwise the pilot will get sloppy in the case mouth and can cause chatter marks on the mouth. Don't ask me how I know that......
