Extended M5 Bottom Metal for 6.5 PRC Rifles
We've had a lot of questions from folks wanting to use a detachable box magazine to feed a 6.5 PRC. In the past, rifle owners wanting to utilize loads with an OAL longer than 2.80" have had to modify their actions by cutting or machining a notch in the feed ramp.
Instead, our patent-pending design of our Extended M5 Bottom Metal shifts the magazine well posteriorly by .100" to gain the extra length needed to load cases with a longer OAL without having to modify the action or feed ramp. When combined with a magazine without a binder plate, rounds with an OAL of 2.95" can magazine feed. This is particularly helpful with custom or handload using the long, heavy-for-caliber projectiles like the Hornady 147 gr ELD-M and the new Berger 156 gr bullet.
