    Hey guys like I said I am going to build a 6x6.5x47 Lapua. I am going to use a Surgeon Short Action Repeter with Badger Ordnance M5 bottom metal for the 10 round magazine. My question is, will the 6x6.5x47 feed well with this set up?

    I saw somewhere that no modification was needed for 6x47laupa to feed well outta a remmy 700 mag. I don't know about the 10rnd. mag ur tring to use tho. If it's a detachable mag I would guess that u might have some trouble, but the shoulder angle isn't really steep or anything so might be okay. I'll let u know how mine feeds when I get it back in another 2 weeks or so. That is if I can find dies to form cases first!! So far all I have is a forester neck die.

    While I don't have any experience with teh 6 x 47 Lapua . my 6.5 x 47 Lapua feeds well from my Sako-75 magazine as it does from my Borden alpine with BDL magazine.
