Re: 6.5 ss final design

Very nice, just a gauge away from seeing what it'll do. I'm very excited to see what it does, very cool to take a new chambering that isn't an improvement of an other case but a whole different animal and work it out!!!

    Good luck man.... The last several orders I have had with them have taken well past due date. The order I am waiting on now, a bolt and firing pin, they said will go out March 12th. Damn, I should have confirmed that was 2013...

    Order a die blank from PTG and ream it with your chamber reamer. Then bore it for Redding bushings. Pretty simple with a lathe.

    Biggest fail of 2014 so far... http://www.longrangehunting.com/foru...ea-ftf-128972/

    My guess on W3P .308 230 Grain Bullet: G1 .740-.755
