chamber reamer drawings

Where can I find drawings online for various chamber reamers? I have searched and searched but cannot find a website that has drawings for lots of different reamers.

My brother is planning to buy a Savage Weather Warrior in 300 WSM and hopes to handload for it. He is concerned that the magazine box might be too short to allow him to seat the bullets out to touch the lands. He called Savage and they said that their magazine boxes are 3" long and that their chambers are reamed to
SAAMI specs but we do not have a drawing of that chamber to know if the bullets will be able to touch lands and still fit in the box. Thanks, Bruin

Call Pacific Tool and Gauge and ask for David. Although he may not provide drawings if you can give him an idea of what bullet you are planning to shoot he can steer you towards the reamer that will fulfill your need.

I do not need a reamer. My brother is buying a factory rifle that is already chambered. We just would llike to see what a SAAMI reamer drawing looks like for the 300 WSM in particular.

Check this link, it has dimensions of reamers they rent.
I am sure that if you called PT&G they would send you a copy of the SAAMI reamer print.

Re: chamber reamer drawings

I think JGS Precision Tool has prints on-line. I think you need a Stoney Point/Pacific OAL gage instead of a chamber print, though.

+1. The recommended .300 WSM OAL is 2.86" (base to tip of bullet, not ogive), if the Savage magazine is built to allow 3.00" per advice, then you have .140" to play with.

Good luck!
