Re: Action length?
Whew! thanks guys thought I was losing it.
I was looking at size descriptions for the MTM bore guide. Here are two of the descriptions
1) catalog # yadayada for .17 to .243 (6mm) calibers. Fits Remington 700, 788, 40X short actions; Mauser 300, Ruger 77 short actions; and similar bolt sizes.
2) catalog # yadayada for .17 to .243 (6mm) calibers. Fits Remington 700, 788 long action; Winchester 70 short action; Savage 110; Weatherby Mark V long actions and Vanguard actions; Ruger 77 long actions.
I read these and at the time I couldn't for the life of me picture how a short action caliber needed a device that fit a long action. The large caliber devices mentioned short actions as well. Now in retrospect and rereading I get it [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]

If you're gonna be dumb you better be tough.
