Sounds interesting...I understand the match (longer) throat, but what is a match neck? Is that another term for a tight-neck?
Yup, the match necks are tighter than the standard necks. The original reamer print from PTG had a shorter throat, I lengthened .050 form .150 to .200 to accommodate the 200 gr CEB's. So I guess it's a Modified Match. It's still about .100 too short for ideal 230 Hybrid seating but should work OK. My current 230 COAL is 3.820, .010 off the lands, which just barely fits the mag box. I was initially intending to use the 215 Hybrids which would fit perfectly.
