I was only going on what I read here...don't have any components to measure at this time.
Which "identical location" are you referring to?
It stands to reason I guess...it went downhill the moment Remington got involved...just further proof that Remington could tear up an anvil with a Q-Tip...Nosler is a good company, it sucks that they followed Remingtons lead on this.
Yes...I blame Remington...and Nosler...but mostly Remington!
I don't guess there's any real damage done...the .014" in capacity won't be missed (not enough to matter)...but it sucks that all the confusion had to play out.
