Re: ? for the smiths, feeding problems
There are two vertical indents in the mag. box, just in front of the shoulder of a .308 case. When you AI the .260 these indents actually hit the case body right on the shoulder junction.This causes the case to jump out too soon. I have a .260 AI on a Savage 16. I flattened out the indents and put new indents in the box about .100 of an inch forward.(I made a special tool to do this) Now it feeds awesome for an AI,in fact I wish I could post a video clip of how well it feeds,but not sure how to go about that. I just put four rounds in the magazine and worked the bolt as fast as I possibly could and all four fed flawlessly,then I put all four back in and worked the bolt slow and steady and again all fed flawlessly.
Hope this helps,
p.s you should not need to modify the feed rails.
without God their is no hope for this country
