Re: headspace question! help!
You wont know till you get the parts put together. DONT assume that if the bolt closes with a cartridge in the chamber that all is OK. You will need to employ the use of a go/nogo guage to know. Too much headspace will cause case head separation. No way to tell till you guage it. If in doubt, take it to a competent smith. If there is too much space the barrel will need to be set back a tad. If there is not enough, then a reamer will need to be used to cut it deaper.

My answer to this is. The only reason is to make the 7 RM look good. There is no other reason.
