Yeah really...u know what they say about assuming
I did find out about the free bore last may...then I ordered the new reamer. I thought it was just a Remington/lawyer thing and now come to find out it is part of the design. Maybe, I should not be attempting to touch the lands or maybe just getting closer with the .20 reamer tighten it up. Got the primer issue figured out so my velocity picked back up to around 2980-3000.
All in all, my accuracy is very livable but, who could complain about it getting better lol.
My ol 270 took a fat Forky this fall....u been out shooting that new stick?
Let me know next time you want to shoot...my 308 needs some love.
