Depth Question

My question is.

3.476 is the length from (col) to the lands.
3.340-- is the col of my gun and the max a shell can be for mag.
0.136 is how far a jump my bullet has to the lands. ( If math is correct) this seems like a lot to me


Dose this seem right. I took 2 hours tested and retested colored shell over and over until I found the just and i mean just touching the lands.

Re: Depth Question

It is a very reasonable amount of jump - which is normal in factory chambers.

Since the 710 is a low end rifle, and not a match grade action, don't worry about it - if you want something better, you will have to start off with a custom barrel that is throated to match the load you want to shoot.

You may be able to remove the filler in the magazine box and get more room, but I doubt that you will see any improvement.

Re: Depth Question

yeah i know that the gun isn't the best but it was found out after i bought it.

I was just looking for ways to make it more acurate.

I can put 5 in a quarter at 100 yards with a hot load but i want have backed it down some and my groups have opened up.so i'm looking for other ways to help this out.

Re: Rem 710 Purchase

Then, if you're getting that kind of performance from that rifle, pat yourself on the back. There are too many people out there wanting that level of accuracy from such a rifle.

Well Done. My' hat's off to ya-
Now...

Re: Rem 710 Purchase

i thought it was pretty good for a low end gun.But with the load i was seperating cases.so i droped it and the groups opend way up. so was looking for an way to fix it. and was woundering if i had way to much bullets jump or was it normal.

Thanks for all the info again
