For those running the Berger 156eol in 6.5 prc , I just started playing with oal and I’m at 3.050 touching the lands. That means if I want to start at .025 off I’d be at 3.025. At what length can I reliably feed from the factory mag box ?

2.970" if you have a Wyatt's extended length box. So a .070" jump.

I think the CAs are longer than Wyatt's. I remember it begin right at 3.050 with feeding still ok around .035 ish off the lands. @Broz has had a few so maybe he can chime in.

I added the Wyatts box to my 6.5 PRC and it is trickey to remove enough bolt stop on the CA rifles to let the bolt back far enough to get to the back of the box. And when ejecting a loaded round you will need to push the bolt forward a little

Sorry. I was confused I thought one of those 6.5 PRCs was factory mag.

It was in the beginning and I had to run it .035" off the lands and it was still tight. It liked .025" better so I swapped the box and dont have the old one any longer to measure. I posted the measurements at the time on here some place with load work up.
