Thank you. I am searching for posts now. I see you had a video on it, but I can’t find a link. I have an MDT, have a 10rd AM on the way, is the 5rd better?
I am at 2.53” .020”off with 75 and 80 eld, .223 rem. I am thinking about trying the 88. Either way more length would be nice to chase lands. Any links would be much appreciated. Thanks for your help
Wow, thanks man! That is great to see pics. I think my gunsmith throated out my chamber too much. He has a ptg 5.56 reamer that I wanted him to throat to about a wylde length, +-.065.
I will try and file the AM 10 rounder. Maybe I will have to buy one of the 5 rounders.
Do you think I could get 2.6” from an AM or MDT?
About how much throat erosion per 100rds do you see in .223? My 6mm’s are about 3-4 thousandths per 100rds.
I really appreciate the insight.
You could certainly reach 2.600" COAL,if required. All of the mods would be in the nose of the box,as they are both .140" thick there. The 5rd steel AM would be easiest,both because it's shorter and lined to a steel outer shell. You could remove the entire thickness,less an issue.
The forward round mark on the AM,is where they peened the floorplate closed and dimpled it into place.
I quit measuring throats like that decades ago and every now and again,simply check the Dummy in the die box and add what's needed,which is one of many reasons why I love Comp Seaters and the RCBS open mouth bitches in particular............................
