Thanks for the video......love that build on a Winchesteer WSSM receiver! now I have ideas for my 25WSSM when it's rebuild time.
6.5x61Super on a WSSM action:
Did you remove the ejector due to the small receiver opening? or do you extract the bolt to remove the spent case.
Vortex Glass on all of my centerfires, I had a Nightforce BR 8-32x56mm on my 6.5x61Super, very nice, however the 1/8MOA clicks was way TOO MUCH when I shoot tactical course or take long shots on groundhogs!!
The Vortex Glass is very comparable albeit at a better price = $500 buys a lot of bullets, powder, and primers!!
ON empty brass I can eject as normal, the brass clears the ejection port no issues. Kind of amazing when you think I have a LONG ACTION cartridge in a super short action..The BENEFIT = the super short action of the WSSM is VERY VERY STIFF = accurate
My gunsmith helped collaborate on the 6.5x61Super build, I had Dave Kiff at PTG make me a custom 6.5x61Super reamer....if you are interested, I'll PM my gunsmith's name to you.
The rifle flat out shoots 1/4MOA out to 1,200 yards
