    I bet firing that would leave marks on the cases. Absolutely unacceptable. Any machinist or gunsmith could have easily made a correctly fitting part. Frank-certified machinist.

    Copperheads are only slightly hard to identify just before they sluff. Their patterns aren't as distinct then. They don't look anything like rat snakes. It's not like they are rare.

    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.
