    What is the mag length? Can you run Berger 300s to the lands and still fit magazine? Which bullets shot best? What has been typical group size? Sorry if you already answered these questions and I missed it. Thanks

    seekins advertised a 3.9" mag length, I need to measure when I get home tonight to verify the accuracy of that. I haven't loaded any bergers yet, I sighted in @100 with the sierras it was around an inch 3 shot, went to 300 with lapua scenars and they grouped about an inch 3 shot @300 so I have been shooting them. I havent been back to the bench to try any other loads. Garland set the chamber with the sierras and cut it where it can be set back and still fit in the mag, I loaded 10-15 thousandths off the lands and the rounds fit in the mag with room to spare, this being said I cant say how much different the bergers are, but can load one if need be.

    Thanks
    Matt

    Your right, someone does need this! That someone also needs the extra cash lying around to buy it. Sweet rifle, I wish I could help you find it a new home.... Do you take plastic :D

    I can take plastic thru discreet paypal as long you either cover the fee or use the gift option.
