    Wanted

    Hi Guys, I'm after a couple of things...

    First up, does anyone have or know where I can get a stainless long action bolt stop for a Tikka T3? I remember reading ages ago that there was a guy who had machined some but I can't find the post with the search tool.

    Second, I'm also after a few (maybe 6???) Lapua 308 cases that I could run through a 7mm08 FL die to see if I'll have any thick neck/chambering issues.

    Cheers WJ

    Do you know that lapua are now making 7mm08 brass? However I'm not sure if Belmont ammunition have any stocks yet. FYI.

    I got one off trademe ages ago, too long ago to remember

    If you have the solid bolt stop you can lenghten it to a long action style with a file, if it is skeletonised you are out of luck

    On my 223 I got a few weeks ago the bolt stop is skeletonised. But has a lug in it that I'm sure is about right for the long action. @Kiwi Greg might have some?
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone

    @puku, yeh that little lug is just a fraction too far forward and you have to file past it to get to the same length as a long action one. I filled the back cavity with steel putty and tried to file it to shape but it doesn't seem to last long before the bolt can go past it

    Ahh bugger. What about a bit of weld with a mig to fill. Then file back?
