It is a 8x68s case Ackley improved in 7mm. 73gns of 2225

I stand corrected ! As I thought 280 ai was the biggest one could go in standard bolt face ( if that's correct ) !


Nope the 6.5&8 x 68 Schüler has a rim diameter of 0.512.

Re: And my new effy build begins.

I'd be interested to hear whether you have any stiff bolt lift problems. Seems every report I've read on the u300 is accompanied by a comment on how heavy the bolt lift is.

Re: slamfires

Thanks for the replys. I think rifle is off to the gunsmiths. Rob Give it a good clean with shellite or the likes first and blow it out with compressed air.

The group is only a few days old but is growing quickly, but w...
