Hello,

My reamer was designed back back when Pacific tool used hand written numbers in the reamer blank drawings. Mine is a 35* shoulder.

GREAT! Then it should be almost identical to the Allen Express! =^)

MC,

I believe that my design was earlier than the Allen Express so his would be like mine.

I "should" be able to get a rough idea since the .416 Rigby is longer and the claw extractor will just pick up the 338 AE and hold it in place. My email is mindcrime@charter.net and my zip code is 38506. If you can do so easily, I can PayPal you the money for the bullet and the dummy round. Just let me know "how much." A small padded envelope should be satisfactory for shipping. JFYI, I already have a few standard .338 Lapua cases for comparison.

I contacted Kirby already, but he seems to be quite the busy man, and has forgotten my request (it's OK Kirb, we're not all perfect). =^)
Just received mine from Kirby today. Try him again.

LV is sending me one of his "Dummies" so it should be "close." Kirby just forgot about me with hunting season and all the smithing that he has been covered up with. No biggie.
