    Working on a cartridge very similar to the 400 hundred Whelen. P-14 action with P-17 bolt ,magazine and floor plate. Had Clymer do the reamer and go gauge, but unfortunately they used a 30-06 blank for the gauge which is smaller then the proposed shoulder on mine (.459). They sold the company since I purchased the reamer and the new Clymer wasn't very happy about it. Its been three weeks since I sent it back and haven,t heard any thing. Jaime

    I'm working up loads now. Clymer did make another headspace gauge without charge,even though the company did change hands.
