Hello all, Just got most of my gun together! Still monkeying around with the JP trigger I bought for it.. But 3lbs of trigger pull is pure happiness! :( . I have a Fulton Amory upper with a 1:12 twist barrel and all the goodies.. Now for the help! I'm trying to measure THE LENGTH to Ogive (AKA freebore or LTO).. I'm not having any luck! :( I have never done this in a semi auto before! My 22.250 and my 300 WSM was a piece of cake.. Can anyone (Shooter John??) Give me some advice here.. I want to set 2 dies up, 1 for 40 grn Hornady V max and the other for 55 gran Vmax.. I got pretty frustrated last night trying to figure it out :P Thank you, CamoghostAttached File  toy_1.JPG   61.65KB   67 downloads

I try when I can. I'm sure you'll get that thing figured out once you get the right equipment.
