    Wanting to borrow 6.5mm throat in reamer

    Hi all. Just built a 260Ackley and want to lengthen the throat. Anyone have a reamer I could borrow?

    I've just had this done to mine, though I got Robbie Tiffen to do it.

    About a hundy. I had other work done at same time, so it wasn't itemised on the invoice. Barrel was removed and then throat set based on a dummy round I supplied. 143gr ELD-X @ 2.995 from memory.
