9mm Carbide Reamer

Salt bath nitriding is becoming common place yet carbide reamers are tough to get.

This isn't a big problem in most applications but pistol barrels are generally short chambered and need to be fitted. Even if they aren't short chambered, cutting leade for 147gr bullets is needed with some 9mm chambers.

And it's not just pistol barrels. The 9mm AR is becoming more common place and many barrels have the nitriding process yet there are no reamers.

Anybody know where a carbide reamer can be ordered?
