    I just bought a used 6.5 gap 4s and I want to order a bore/chamber guide for it. I can’t find one that lists this caliber because it’s a wildcat I suppose. I called brownells but none of their techs were on duty. Do I need a custom one made? What ones are you guys that have this chamber running?
    Thanks

    If you get one made this is the best. He's made several for me. I got the bore tech one for my 6.5 SAUM because I needed one in a hurry .It's worked well though.

    I’ve seen ones that say they’ll fit WSM and 7 RSAUM. Do you think that’s ok, or do I need a 6.5 specific one made?

    When was the last time you had one made? I tried a couple of times last year and the year before and never got a response.

    Try again, I have purchased two in the last six months. Great service, I do not understand the problem?

    I had two made earlier this year and just ordered one more. He responded to my email the same day, I paid him, and then they show up about a month later (right after he sends an email that says it shipped).

    And his guides are great.

    Been a few months for me but I just gave Mike's info to a friend on Saturday. He sent Mike an email that day to order 3 guides with inserts and Mike responded right away same day with a quote.
