  • What reamer freebore are you guys using for a .223 with a 8 twist barrel shooting 77 grain Sierra Matchkings (longest) and 53 grain Hornady V-Max (shortest). Thanks.

  • I have two AR15 rifles and a Savage bolt action .223 rifle, and the throat is longer on the Savage than the ARs.

  • My PTG .223 match reamer has an .039 freebore and the 69SMKs are down in the case quite a bit. Having said that, I chambered a Lilja 1-8 Sendero barrel with it and it loves the 63gr Sierra SPs.

    All sellers must disclose if the item is posted for sale elsewhere and state that the item is "subject to prior sale."

    Any seller who uses deceptive photos, lies about key components or major defects will have his advert deleted without notice and is subject to being banned from the Forum forever.

    1. Damaged or bulged barrels (unless they are sold only as salvage metal and are clearly described as "not to be used with live ammunition".)

    Commercial Ads
    Commercial businesses which are current, paying sponsors may post Classifieds. These shall be posted in the "Commercial Sales" area ONLY.
