    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.
