rfurman that is another reason why you don't want to go over the std mag case head.
I chambered a barrel today and fitted a break. Need to bed the action in the stock, open up the channel for the barrel too. I ordered up the stuff I need to make a hydro form die from mcmaster carr so that should be here in the middle of the week and hopefully we should have a test fire or 20 next weekend.
I am getting pretty excited. All of the work and money going into this project I hope it runs right along side the norma and Rum for performance.
Yes I did, all i needed was 1 form die to get the basic shape and if I want full capacity then I will use the hydro form die. If I get some time I will make a pneumatic press for kicking out shells fast.

Very cool indeed. Something tells me I'll be ordering a barrel and dies sometime next fall.
One question that I had, I know Savage made rifles in RUM cartridges. Any idea what the mag length on them would have been?
