    Ptg b52 remington clone action

    Anybody here use the Pacific tool and guage Remington clone action and what are your opinions of it?? Am looking for a less expensive option for a build that is good quality yet doesn't break the bank. It comes blueprinted yet I wonder about the description of raw. Am assuming this means it...

    WSM short mag feeding issues

    Thanks for the help...I am not a smith and just didn't do enuff research before moving forward. At this point I'm leaning toward going back to their original chamberings and maybe just build a couple other rifles with correct parts. I just hate to screw these 2 up as they have been my main...

    WSM short mag feeding issues

    I bought this rifle used 30 years ago and it was chambered that way and was a tackdriver. I went the drought of the 6.5 wsm as I have another one in a bench rifle and have the reamer. Just didn't know ofall the issues I was creating in the switch!!!

    WSM short mag feeding issues

    I agree with you on that!! Had I known or foreseen these problems I would have gone a different direction for sure. Am seriously considering just rebarreling back to original round of the 6.5 x .257 weatherby and building the 6.5 wsm on a different action and bottom metal more suitable for the...

    WSM short mag feeding issues

    It feeds reasonably well now with the Pacific tool and gage metal but my problem is the way that particular metal hangs down. I started with the 5 round mag and have switched to the3 round mag by acid. It's the 6.5 wsm that I haven't made that chang with as of yet and was hoping for a better...

    WSM short mag feeding issues

    Thank you all for the help...it is very much appreciated!!! My 300 wsm feeds ok now but does anybody know of another bottom metal supplier for the mauser 98 other than the ptg which is great stuff but is more for the other disciplines rather than hunting. Pacific took and gage was the ONLY...

    Pacific took and gage were the only bottom metal I could find for the mauser 98 actions.

    WSM short mag feeding issues

    When I switched to the shorter wider cartridge neither one seems to pop up correctly and they both jam. I have been told I need a straight magazine feed which I did in the 300 wsm....and it feeds better now but have to deal with the mag sticking down. I much prefer the bdl type in my hunting...
