It'll fit into a short action AI style magazine if you use one without a binder plate, but only just barely. It's a no-go for standard magazines with binder plates though.It's not really a "build" but if you have an AIAX-MC you can get a 6.5 PRC bbl easy peasy - just call MHSA with your credit card handy. Think you need the LA version? Not sure...
Depends. If you only ever plan to shoot factory ammo from Hornady a short action will work just fine since the ELD-M offering from Hornady is 2.95" COAL and their ELD-X is 2.945" COAL (AI mags with no binder plate can fit up to 2.95" rounds).Is long action or short action the way to go on these?
The only one I know for sure will be the ridgeline, it's a greybow stock (The ridgeline) with their B17 action.Do you know which rifles they're going to offer the 6.5 PRC in? I'm curious if the entry level HMR will get the PRC or if it'll be reserved for the Premier line of rifles.
It's an extra plate on the inside of the front of the magazine, at the seam where the magazine is welded together. It reduced the room for long cartridges inside the magazine by a fairly substantial amount. The intended purpose of it is to make the magazine more durable, but I personally haven't seen or heard of magazines without binder plates failing at the weld before.what is a binder plate
