    Tikka LA bolt stop

    Can someone with a LA tikka Bolt stop tell me how long it is from round end to bolt stop face?

    I've just started to file mine back and am wondering how far to go.

    Also while on the subject I am looking for a new mag for it, rather than butchering the current one.
    At present I have a SM mag, its standard for a 270wsm. Which mag should I get to fit a longer WSM case/pill?

    Im guessing a LM?? Does it even exist?

    Your mag is Short Magnum, you need to modify your mag as there is no long SHort magnum mag.

    I would be looking at what OAL your need to load ammo and then measure to see how much your bolt needs to move back to put the round up.

    I've had long throated rifles were it was better to take the barrel off and move the chamber foward then play with mag length.
    If its guns, tits or tyres it's going to cost you lots of money

    What is the oal of your loaded round? would a long mag not work, given there would be a heap of extra room depending on oal

    oh rite u've answered my next question in your second post crzyman. I was hoping I could get a mag that was the same width as the Short Magnum one but just longer. Thats a bit of a bugger. Surely there are some cases the same case width but longer. Mind you Tikka may not accommodate these cartridges....

    Hori, at present Im not sure how long it is to the lands with the Accubonds or VLD's as Im waiting on the Modified case to get here to check.
    I did have a play a while ago to get in the lands and it was only just ejectable. But keep in mind it was a real rough way of measuring OAL for touching.

    Yea that was my plan to file back until it picks the round up, was just wondering if there was a good length to go. (but thinking now its better to do it to suit the rifle).

    Accubonds shoot 0.75 inch at 100yards when full length in mag.
    The VLD's are a little bit over 1 inch, maybe 1.25". I put some through single feed the other day and it tightened to under 1 inch. But it was only three shots so can't say for sure if its certain.
    My ability is average at best, so im looking for as much help as possible.
