Modified case

New to the website and poking around. I purchased a Savage LRH in 300 win mag with a 4*16 Vortex Viper PST scope. Now regretting not going with the 7mm, 300 win mag stuff is imposible to find. So here I am looking for a modified case for the 300 win mag to ensure proper loads. If anyone has one I can purchase or borrow (I will pay for shipping back and forth)?

I picked up a couple at a gander Mountain close out sale, but traded them away a couple months ago! Make your out modified case. The 5/16-27 tap can be bought, and a .312" reamer will get you by. But a .001" undersized reamer would be far better. These are not hard to find as well.

Take a once fired case (unsized) and see if the bullet will slide into it freely. If not the .311" reamer will work. The threaded hole is another, but not that hard to take care of. You could single point the thread if you have a lathe and are good at grinding high speed tool bits

5/16x36 is correct tap size, and I use 9/32" drill (.2854 is correct, but 9/32 works well) buy the tap/drill and then you can make cases for all your reloading cals.
or send me 2 fired cases and I will make them for you.

when did they change the thread size? I have several stoney points, and every one of them has a 5/16-27 thread. Hornady bought out stoney point years back.

I have a Hornady tool and it is 5/16-36. My buddy has the Stoney Point and his is a 5/16-36 also. I have no idea how old it is.
