Sorry to hear about that vet bill, hope your animal is ok. I sure hope they do, but I’m debating getting another factory stock and a redsnake bottom metal to try out too. That’d shave a fair amount of weight off.I am glad yours worked out. I ended up chickening out on this one, which wasn't the worst thing because a $1000 vet bill just came my way. If KRG ends up coming out with a lighter weight stock in the next year or two, I may give this another go. I look forward to seeing how Juan_ID's goes.
Sounding like just using the factory bottom metal and a waters rifleman mag may be the best bet. Magazines aren’t cheap but it would be more economical than buying an aics conversion bottom metal and aics magWhat is a viable bottom metal option for 6 ARC / 6.5 Grendel in a Stocky's VG2 stock?
I've got a Grendel setup in Savage that has loads of room in magazine; just contemplating if worth setting it up in Tikka
I have thought about the ctr stock and 223 mags since I sold the ctr stock I got with my 6.5 creed. Very tempting to try and find another stock and try a 223 mag since I think they’re almost identical in internal dimesions as the mdt 6 arc mags.I still run this conversion through by head every once in a while, and it's still something I would like to pursue. Has anyone messed with a 223 CTR magazine to see if the 6ARC would work out of it?
Don’t know much of the atlasworx bottom metal but I’ve shot close to 1k rounds through mine in a krg bravo using a 10rd mdt aics dasher mag and it fed without issue in that setup.So I stumbled onto this and ran down the rabbit hole. I am going to give this a try. I plan on using a CTR stock and buying the Atlasworxs bottom metal so I can run AICS magazines. I have a .223 that I can use so I will report back on how it goes when it's all done.
What are the specs on your barrel? I am looking at Preferred. I can't decide between a 1/8 or 1/7.5. Which factory ammo has been the most accurate for you so far?Don’t know much of the atlasworx bottom metal but I’ve shot close to 1k rounds through mine in a krg bravo using a 10rd mdt aics dasher mag and it fed without issue in that setup.
