I made a dummy round with the beginning of the bearing surface of a 168vld just to the neck/shoulder junction and it measures 3.13" OAL.
Hope it helps.

    Is the 2.965" OAL for the 175 SMK when the bullet is seated max .284" into the neck ? If so, looks like a LA may not be required after all..tnx

    Yes thank-you. It looks like a 3.1" short action would pretty much accomodate these bullets just fine...interesting...

    I just measured the max O.A.L. that will fit in the watts box,and its 2.995.This is a short action.If you need more, than the long action is the way to go,or the Savage.

    Kalashnikov,
    The 175mk load is seated about .350 into the neck.

    What kind of velocoties are you guys getting with your 162 A-Max and 175 SMK's ? Loads ?

    Maybe the M700 SA with Wyatts box extended magazine is the way to go....

    Good info. tnx

    I'm getting 2,900 fps from my 7WSM with the Sierra 175 smks using a 26" Kreiger 9 twist barrel and a overall length of 2.860" My load is 65.0 grains of RL-25 or 66.4 grains of H1000 (a little slower - 2,875).

    My current set up is magfed from AI magazines through a Surgeon Short Action.
