Ol'Kirby has an XP of mine now making a LR handgun but seeing some of the results fellas are posting about APS guns has me interested in the next project already!! My interest for this go-round is in the 270AM. Correct me if I am wrong on any of the following assumptions The 270AM is based from the 300 RUM case?? Whereas the .277AM is based on the 338 LM case which is nearly too large for the Rem or Savage action. It will fit/feed from any standard magnum length action...Rem 700, Savage three digit action (112, 116, etc)?? A 30" barrel would be plenty-o-tube for the 270AM?? Dies need to be purchased from APS?? Thanks.........Dan B.
