    100% machining your own action is legal, however, using a rifle action to do a handgun is not unless you get a SBR stamp.

    The only statement that is correct is that it is the internet. The 6.5 Creedmoor is the brain child of the partnership by Hornady Senior Ballistics Scientist, Dave Emary and Dennis DeMille, the VP of product development for Creedmoor Sports for NRA...

    I've had a copy of McGivern's book for years and it is an interesting read. His shooting abilities were WAY out of proportion to his diminutive size!

    My vote is for the .358 Winchester. I like a short compact rifle and so took one of my Remington 600's and had the .308 barrel re-bored and re-rifled to .358 Winchester with gain twist by Ron Smith in Alberta since I live above the 49th Parallel. ...

    M-Tecs replied to a thread 6.5 Creedmore - NOT in Factory Rifles
    Running the long bullets in the .260 for magazine feeding requires the bullet be seated in the donut area of the neck. This creates issues since most competitors don't want to inside neck ream. They much prefer to outside neck turn. The 6.5...

    Yes it will feed the very long bullets used by the long range competitors out of a 308 length mag. With the .260 using the same long bullets the mag runs out of space.

    I J which minie do you use with that load? How does the rifle kick at 90 grains? 30-30, 30-06, or 444 Marlin? I think 90 grains is real close to the service charge. Also this Enfield is 48" twist too. My home range goes to 500 meters so...

    In the early 1900's it was very common for competition shooting. It greatly reduces fouling. Most BP competitions do not allow it today. http://castboolits.gunloads.com/showthread.php?137201-Black-powder-duplex-loads
