    I built this a few weeks ago. I finished out the barrel at 26.25" and used a Manson 6.5X55mm AI reamer. Looks like it's going to be handloads only for fireforming since even the Prvi Partizan 140s I bought have too round of an ogive to chamber without force. I still need to bed it and finish the bottom metal, or make a decision on doing the receiver, bolt, recoil lug, and bottom metal in something else.
