Interesting. My smith did an excellent job in letting/fitting the Magpul to my McMillan BDL stock. Everything sits well and functions perfectly. He is a perfectionist and is the reason he builds all of my rifles. I was going to try to modify it to fit my stock but the amount of material to be...
Are you trying to say the BDL inlet doe not have to be opened up to install the magpul DBM? If so that hasn't been my experience at all. I run 2 of the Magpul DBM and bother were previously BDL inlet and had to be opened up significantly.
Thanks Feenix. I've never used the Quality Cartridge brass but back before the 6.5-300 Weatherby came back into favor I received less than good feedback from shooters that had used it. At the time they were the only ones offering properly headstamped brass.
I typically consider Lapua, ADG and Peterson as premium brass. Nosler has always been too soft IMO.
I am a stickler for properly head stamped brass but seems to be no love for the 264WM.
How do you use Weatherby brass? Seems the shoulder and neck dimensions wouldn’t work. Unless you are...
I have a 28” Proof blank begging to be chambered one 264 Win mag. I’m very picky about brass. I almost exclusively shoot Lapua but am dabbling with some Peterson brass on my 260 right now.
So do any premium guys make 264WM or am I going to have to make it from 7 mag?
As mentioned not all presses cam over. My Forster CoAx doesn’t or at least I’ve never had it set up to do that. But it does have hard stops at the bottom of the stroke and produces very consistent ammo.
No doubt bullets *should* kill quicker than archery. Animal has to lose enough oxygen to the brain by collapsing lungs and bleeding out whereas a bullet also has the shock to go with it.
There are places here in Texas where you want animal to drop where they stand. There is some nasty stuff...
I don’t buy into the not wanting a pass through theory. I’m going to wager to say if a bullet fully expands that it’s expended likely 85-90% of its energy right where it needed to in the first 4-8” of penetration and causing the most effective damage possible. Even if it passes through that last...
Can someone that has issues with the Hornady gauge explain exactly what changes where you can’t get repeatability? Obviously the hole isn’t changing in the insert.
The only thing I can see inconsistent would be the user, but I’m willing to listen.
Thank God somebody said it. I can get repeatability every time with my Hornady tool. Any variation I see is usually in the bullet itself.
You need to make sure you are putting your tool on the calipers correctly. Put it on with the screw to the back or you will not be measuring square to the...
I have a 28” 8 twist proof barrel that’s begging me to make it a 264WM. I also had a friend give me 200 pieces of brass and a set of Redding dies so I really have no excuse not to.
I’m considering selling my R700 5R Milspec (unfired) and building a WTO switch lug with 264WM and 300 WM barrels.
