I would like to know, and understand freebore on a rifle. I see members on here wanting to possibly purchase a rifle, and sometimes the amount of freebore on them sometimes makes their mind up on whether to purchase, or not to purchase a firearm from someone. I have read articles on how to measure it and one of the easiest ways I see is to just take a bullet, turn it around 180 degrees, place it in a case that will allow the bullet to be pushed into the case as the round is chambered, and measure the distance from the end of the bullet to the top of the cartridge. This distance is now the freebore? Is there other ways to accuratly measure this dimension?
