Re: Throat lenght Vs Performance
That is great as long as your rifle is a push feeder, but if you've got a Mauser action, Ruger 77 Mk2 or other controlled round feeder that have to feed out of the magazine then the mag length becomes your COAL limiting factor. Common problem with 6.5x55 which is long throated to begin with in SAAMI chambered, you can't seat the bullets out far enough to reach the lands and still feed out of the magazine with controled round feed actions. The Swede I'm having built right now on a '98 Mauser action will be chambered with a 6.5x55 Match reamer from PT&G and hopefully I won't have this problem.
