    That's all it really does. If it headspaces then it's fine. I haven't heard of a bent carrier rattail ever...

    Your drawing of the change to the barrel is correct. It is sort of like the feedramps on an M4, they changed the angles and not the depth.

    Yes,that is correct! I have had guns that rammed the bullet nose so hard that the bullet was pushed back into the case. Always w/ hollow points, never w/ FMJ. Sometimes its only a few thousanths keeping it from working, so do a little at a time,check it, do somemore till it works.

    Im working on my AK grips this weekend, if I get that done, and the list of honey do's then maybe, just maybe I can work on this!!!

    I will take your advise and do a little at a time... I need to find some cheap surplus ammo for CHEAP!!! Im getting low on ammo as it is, and I may just use this OTM (Hollow point) ammo in my Rem700 and see how it shoots, its only about 50 rounds left.
