That is very generous. I have an unchambered 6.5 1:8, Rock Creek carbon wrapped barrel NIB.
Q on the Whidden custom dies…aren't they made with the same reamer as the chamber…I read that the die should be .002-.003 undersize so you can make allowance for metal spring back after full length sizing. Have you heard that ? What are your thoughts ?
