Thanks for the update Broz. I just got 100 in a few days ago. I will give some a try out of my Khan later this week.

I would have to modify my AI mags, they are square in the rear which acts as a bolt stop when you are empty. It's kinda nice to have a 5rnd mag I may try the XL Mags from Mcrees, what is your COAL?

3.860" Ogive is at 3.004"

I am not sure about the 5 round mag thing. I am building a rifle now (for a friend) with one. It is a seekins and plenty long, but heavy and I would never shoot five in a row anyway. I like my barrel more than that. Pretty sure I will be building single shots in the future. More and more I am a believer in the " slow hit is better than a fast miss" senario.

Re: Amazed with the Gen 2 Bergers

Crap, the XL mags are like 3.770, I could probably make that work... either that or I'll just stick with ye ole SMK, my poor R7L-TMAG would sure look funny as a single shot....

Re: Amazed with the Gen 2 Bergers

I have seated some of these pretty deep, at least .060" deeper than I am now. Didn't seem to affect the accuracy much. At least not durring load work up to 500 yards. Might be worth a try.

+1 Jeff, I cant figure out why Long range hunting rifles need mags myself, in a military application heeeell yes, but hunting no IMHO.
All my longrangers are bulit on Barnard P's.

But if it smokes yeh tyres, get magazines.

Back on topic, got too many 300 SMKs to buy more, but I spose I could get a box and try em, then maybe sell the SMK's if theyre real good.
