    I know this sounds funny but I have been usuing some of my 257 weatherby boxes to hold my 6.5 ammo. The slip right in but not tight. It been the best I have found so far. My length is 3.1 to 3.5 so they are seeted out there. Hope this helps.

    I have what you need. I have been using this box model for 3 years for my 6.5x284's

    My oal with 140 Bergers is less than 3.2 but this box will handle almost 3.6.

    Tips up or tips down fit perfectly. I have almost a case of these I don't need.

    That appears to be a smoked (color) MTM box. What I did was trundle down to Cabelas with a round in my pocket and tried the boxes on the shelf (for the .338)......

    Natchezz is a PITA on returns as I've found out in the past.

    209 1.40" 5.90" 3.40"
    210 1.40" 6.00" 3.50"
    211 1.50" 6.50" 4.10"
    501 4.60" 2.50" 1.30"
    503 4.80" 2.70" 2.00"
    504 4.70" 2.50" 2.10"
    505 4.80" 2.70" 3.00"
    506 6.30" 3.40" 2.00"
    507 4.80" 2.70" 2.00"

    509 5.90" 3.20" 3.10"
    510 6.00" 3.30" 3.70"
    511 6.40" 3.50" 4.10"
    512 5.60" 3.10" 2.60"
    514 6.90" 3.80" 3.00"

    1005 4.90" 5.10" 3.00"
    1007 5.80" 6.00" 2.20"
    1008 5.90" 6.10" 1.60"

    I think height is the critical dimension. JohnnyK.

    Len,
    I tried the link you have posted here, for the 2 pack of boxes for sale in the LRH Store, but it says it can't be found. I would like to order 2 of these and if they are sold out or currently unavailable, could you please tell me if they are Frankford Arsenal model 510, 511, or whatever they are? Thanks
