    With a .301 neck you will most likely have to turn your necks. My loaded rounds run right at .303 which is exactly the neck size of the Pac Nor prefit barrel I used for both of my 6.5-25 WSSMs.

    Good luck on your project

    I spoke with Dave Kiff again...I must say he and you guys have been an immense help on my project.

    I will be sending him a "dummy round" which he will be making a reamer from.


    Thanks again!
