    I know this sounds funny but I have been usuing some of my 257 weatherby boxes to hold my 6.5 ammo. The slip right in but not tight. It been the best I have found so far. My length is 3.1 to 3.5 so they are seeted out there. Hope this helps.

    I have what you need. I have been using this box model for 3 years for my 6.5x284's

    My oal with 140 Bergers is less than 3.2 but this box will handle almost 3.6.

    Tips up or tips down fit perfectly. I have almost a case of these I don't need.

    Len...

    That appears to be a smoked (color) MTM box. What I did was trundle down to Cabelas with a round in my pocket and tried the boxes on the shelf (for the .338)......

    Natchezz is a PITA on returns as I've found out in the past.

    I use Midway 510 (now Frankfor Arsenal 510) for my 6.5-284. it will also hold my .25-06 and my .300 WinMag but upside down. Here are the outside dimensions for the amoo box sizes:


    Box # Width Length Height
    209 1.40" 5.90" 3.40"
    210 1.40" 6.00" 3.50"
    211 1.50" 6.50" 4.10"
    501 4.60" 2.50" 1.30"
    503 4.80" 2.70" 2.00"
    504 4.70" 2.50" 2.10"
    505 4.80" 2.70" 3.00"
    506 6.30" 3.40" 2.00"
    507 4.80" 2.70" 2.00"
    508 5.60" 3.10" 1.30"
    509 5.90" 3.20" 3.10"
    510 6.00" 3.30" 3.70"
    511 6.40" 3.50" 4.10"
    512 5.60" 3.10" 2.60"
    514 6.90" 3.80" 3.00"
    515 6.40" 3.50" 3.20"
    1001 4.80" 5.00" 1.50"
    1003 4.80" 5.00" 2.00"
    1005 4.90" 5.10" 3.00"
    1007 5.80" 6.00" 2.20"
    1008 5.90" 6.10" 1.60"
    1009 5.90" 6.10" 3.30"

    I think height is the critical dimension. JohnnyK.

    Mr. Backus,

    What's the price on these boxes? Interested in 1-2 of them!
