savage lrp 260
Hey, thanks in advance for any feedback and advice
I just picked up a savage lrp in 260, two questions,
1, I measured the chamber ,seating the bullet into the lands and it measured 2.760, .040 smaller than sammi specs(2.800) any guess if this short throat would help or hurt with heavier bullets trying to shoot to 1k,I was able to put 100% powder charge in the case but with seating the bullet fairly deep in the case compressing the powder a bit, would a deeper throat help this or is shorter better?
2 also one of the base holes in the receiver is not tapped out for threads its completly smooth, thoughts on sending it back to savage or just do it local?
