Bottom Metal Solution for 300WM COAL of 3.71

I knew I was not following my gut when I chose to go with a magazine loading custom build on the 300WM last fall. (Nathan warned me) Not long after the build was done, I received the shipment of 200 gr ALCO aluminum tipped Match Bullets with rebate boat tail design. Proper seating depth left me with COAL of 3.71 inches. I had already modified the HS Precision Bottom metal mag with a dremel to accommodate my current load development but with a COAL of 3.71 it was hopeless. An internet search led me to Wyatt Outdoors and upon finding a Canadian distributor Wyatt's REM .300 Assembly - 5 MAG was the solution. Even with that, though, some modification was needed to allow the rear of the magazine to come up to proper height So check out Wyatt Outdoors and Plenty ofPatches if your in Canada. The ALCO bullets now that`s another story
