Interesting, hmm?! So you could almost make a 257 Roberts collet die work, for that matter?I'm running my 25 from a 26" m24 contour 3 groove Lilja. I used a Redding 6.5 creed body bushing die with a .283 bushing for the initial size, then expanded with a lee collet 2506 for screwed way out. The collet die has a .255 center rod with a nice smooth taper that works as my mandrel. I have a Sinclair mandrel expander, but it's .257, and I wanted a bit more tension
I've modified Lee Collet Neck dies a few times...a lot of work!!Interesting, hmm?! So you could almost make a 257 Roberts collet die work, for that matter?
I took my 6.5 Creedmoor collet apart, real quick, to take a look see.
Oh yes, I don't doubt it. But to make a 6.5 CM LCND to work in 25 cal correctly is a PITA.Since the collet is the only part working, the 257 Rob might very well work. I only use the 2506 collet for the center rod, as a final mandrel size.
Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1
Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen
The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
