Re: Tikka T3 chamber variations in 6.5x55

It might be an idea to get your chambers casted to find out what is going on. Assuming that your press has the standard 7/8-14 UNC threads, and that it is a half turn adjustment to get them to chamber, this means there is a difference in length of about 0.036" (7/8-14 UNC = 14TPI, 1/14 = 0.071" per turn, 1/2 turn = 0.0357"). To me that would raise some concerns.
