Re: 6.5 SS (Sherman Shortmag)
I also have Mr. Whidden making me dies for my wildcats 338 Wolverine and 375 Mjolnir.....
I too did not like the waiting period with the big ones you mentioned..
I really like your new 6.5mm concept, I have always questioned the 6.5 WSM short neck, this might just be the way to go, coupled with the Norma brass it looks really good...
I know exactly what you mean by changes Happen, I bet Mr. Kiff and the gals at PT&G are relieved all my reamers are finally in production... have been hassling them for the last four months with all my ideas and almost daily changes ... LOL !
do you know If I can convert my M96 Swedish Mauser to the 6.5 SS ? or is the case too fat and will require extensive modifications to make feed properly ? the Swede's box measures 3.234"
max inside length and your 6.5 Sherman won't work.... hoping to do a simple rechamber and slight mods then burn up the 1901 barrel to form brass and finally rebarrel with a 28" Brux 8.5 twist I have laying around
How is it y'all still don't know the difference between CALIBER and CARTRIDGE ??
"In guns, particularly firearms, caliber or calibre is the approximate internal diameter of the barrel, or the diameter of the projectile it fires."
"Fear of weapons is a sign of retarded sexual and emotional maturity"
