Re: Savage LRH 6.5x284
Well we measured the throat again and again came up with 3.24 like before. We then loaded a dummy round and chambered it. Closed the bolt, pulled it out and it measured 3.255. I really don't understand how it can be longer but it is.
I did notice that the very front of the stock was touching the barrel on both sides. It almost looks like it was built up from the factory specifically to make contact. I did have two different loads that shot just under 1" so I am going to clean up that stock, load those two loads, shoot, and see if it makes any difference.
If that doesn't work, I think I'm just going to have a gunsmith set the barrel back just a touch. My buddy who is helping me with the reloading has a good friend who is a gunsmith who is going to take a look at it for me.
Just wanted to say thanks again for all the help. This whole process has been a great learning experience for me.
