    Wanted : Tikka T3 223 Magazine for overlength rounds

    Hi

    I've got reloaded some Vmax53 rounds for 223 which are the shit .. but which are too long for the Standard Magazine.

    Does anyone know where one can get mits on a modified T3 /223 mag for overlength rounds

    To Answer the obvious questions :
    1) Yes, I know SAAMI spec rounds at a maximum length for a reason and I'm exceeding this
    2) I am a busy / lazy C-unit .. yes, I know I could modify one myself.

    Its just a pain in the @rse being reduced to single shot ... and the Tikkas are not built to load singles easily through the ejection port

    good ... not bad, however you could do better ..

    Start with some names ... of people that do it and do it well ...

    Offering to pick up and drop off the mag (modified) would get you an A+

    I cut the back out of my .223 one a while ago, works great with the 75g amax now. I cut my 7-08 one this last weekend, lots easier the 2nd time.
    If you find yourself in a fair fight....your tactics suck
