Great bit for occasional use
I picked up this bit as an odd size I will rarely use and I'm actually pleasantly surprised. Given the price I was expecting a one time use bit but it's actually a pretty nice bit. Great value and highly recommended for an occasional user. It cuts clean, quick and controlled.
Used the 7/16 fostner bit to make some loading blocks to reload 9MM ammo and it worked great!!
Works for S&W grip medallions.
This bit is fine for installing S&W grip locos but first must be ground or re-sized to 13/32". I did this by reverse spinning it in my hand drill while applying the side of the bit to a fine grit bench grinder. Take your time and check your progress as you go. Didn't take long to attain the proper size. Cuts clean, sharp edged holes to the exact depth needed.Worked like a charm.
