You won’t regret it. Build a nice one. A few asked me why , I just wanted a top shelf hunting rifle. I guess to use the precision we all love so much for a real purpose. I built my CM on a Defiance Deviant Hunter with a Benchmark #4 barrel in a Manners EH3 stock. I have had it a bit over 4 years now. The paint is wearing off the stock. The cerakote is a bit beaten & the 2.5-10 PST on top is not in showroom condition anymore either. But I love it. I remember all the trips I’ve had with it. I’d never sell it. It’s my gun. Go your hardest Sportacus I say.
I had a similar thing a while back. The bank told me to always type in the site names when shopping do not use quick links etc. Hackers attach trojans etc to links & wait for you to use them to access details. I was reimbursed as they could see i couldn’t purchase a pizza in the UK & get fuel in Australia on the same day. Hope you get your money back. Sounds like it might be a different situation with you though.
Welcome mate! Plenty of guys running the Hardy gear here in Australia it’s good stuff! Is that a Southfort labs stock? I was checking them out at Shot Show here this year. Really nice stock. Nice scope too!!
If you have access to any other stocks or chassis. Swap it over and see what results Process of elimination. Obviously a magwell size issue there for sure. With the bolt removed look through the back of the action & see how much of the round you can see in a loaded mag Compare this with your action in another stock / chassis if you can. This height is really important.
If the first few cycle ok I would say the rounds are moving forward under recoil. Saying that though If the stock is inletted correctly all AI compatible mags should fit & feed correctly. I have 4 different brands of mags & they all work fine in my Defiance. I have had it in both a stock & a chassis also with no issues. Get all the mags to fit correctly as a start. If they do not fit up into the magwell correctly there will always feed issues.
Seated Bullet measures .291 So I think my neck thickness is .0135. Am I figuring that correctly? .291 minus .264 equals .027....so half of that is my neck thickness? Sorry if thats not correct... still pretty new to this.
Your doing fine mate! I know people who’ve been loading along time making lotsa mistakes
