Single shot follower

I have read where some folks use a single shot follower in their rifles that have magazines. Can anyone tell me why you would want to add that to your gun as opposed to just loading them like you would if you just had one cartridge?

Re: Single shot follower

1) Geek factor. It's way cool. Good topic around the firing line.

2) When going from standard belted magnum, to RUM or Lapua in same action messing with the rails to get it to feed is a pain (hate to pay a smith for stuff like that [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img])

3)There may be, oh! let there please be, some action stiffing as a result of the installation.

4) Gives a much larger bedding surface.

5) Geek factor #2. I like the single shot idea. Always have.] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

I'm about to be in a situation where the overall cartridge length is too long for the magazine. A 12 buck or so + installation isn't a bad solution.
