glad to help. Feeding and functionality are no different from the factory set up. I like the Mod and will continue to do it

    As for fit, finish, functionality, I have no problems with this mod. Now, I have a philosophy of K.I.S.S. and it's just something else to go wrong. I have one on my 300RUM and it is nice but I have also found I can load the heavies in it at about max mag length and still get superb accuracy. I used standard BDL BM on my 280AI to eliminate the possibility of forgetting or losing a magazine in the mountains and finding myself bareassed up there. I'd like to say it will never happen but I have seen it happen personally both ways so I chose to eliminate that possibility with my next build. Just something to consider...

    Installed one on my Darrell Holland built LR 6mm Ackley (1-7" Lilja, flinging the 107 Sierra easily into 1/2 MOA AT 1K!) on a Rem700 short action. VERY PLEASED that now I can seat the bullet out to match the cartridge capacity, instead of using the 243/308 length, PLUS Kevin (the owner) is a great fella to do business with! Highly recommended for those LONG cartridges, short or long action!
