    Always willing to help!

    This magazine is for my 300 Win Mag Stainless Stalker Abolt, same caliber as your friends. It's the standard mag that comes with the rifle. I originally looked at other mags but the aluminum shoulder stop in the mag didn't line up properly with the 300 WM shoulder, and I wanted it to work the way it was designed - to protect the bullet tips from recoil damage. So this came to mind. I took out the floor plate and spring assembly, filed it, painted it and re-assembled it.

    I've put hundreds of rounds through with no problem whatsoever.

    The only prerequsite - you need to be handy with a file.

    Jay

    thanks again, may try a die grinder with a cylindrical flute if not the file or both should do the trick. I appreciate the help. Jeff

    Just googled this problem and here's the solution. Thought I would get this up again as it is a very helpful solution to this problem for Browning A bolt owners who reload for the .300 WM. Excellent idea, about to start filing on mine now. Thanks Jay Kyle

    or you could just shoot them at factory oal.. My browning a-bolt stainless stalker lh boss has a standard mag and it's fine. My hornady bullets are set to 3.34" and they are twenty thou. off the lands. I really see no reason to fiddle with this one; it's fixing something that isn't broke.

    Does anyone have a picture of the bottom of the mag that would show how thick the base is? Are the base and the top the same thickness in the area that was filed off?

    I just filled the grooves parallel so the bullets have the same tip clearance all the way down the mag.
