    Bigslug is correct, the long action of the 98k does present problems often when converted to the shorter .308. i had some ejection problems when i converted one of mine and then i switched to the shorter action of the M48 and feeding and ejection...

    if it will handle the 8x57 it should handle the .308.. the 98 design is one of the strongest designs around.. there were even elephant guns built on the 98 action where they actually had to cut the front ring for relief to get the cartridge in...

    agreed. FMJ is not the ideal stopping design. the big reason i don't have much of it on hand except for practice or for better barrier penetration. if it were up to me id let the guys who wanted to load their 5.56 with the A-Max 75gr. problem is...

    well it is hard to compete with the high speed production equipment that the big ammo manufacturers have. while it is possible to make the components, it takes longer and is a slow tedious process. they can turn out tens of thousands a day on the...
