Gathering components for my next build -- 26" Proof Sendero light to be chambered in 30 Nosler to run 215 Berger hybrids. Will ride in a Manners EH1A Elite Tac.

I know I told you I don't like magnums but I just couldn't resist. Plus I gotta have something to keep up with you when you get around to building your 7-300.

If the chuck Norris comment was in reference to 30 Nos being a caliber for a guy with little mans complex, I'd like you to remember I'm not quite as short as you. If it was in reference to being a bada$$ in general then I'd like to return the compliment.

Thinking of doing one too...I have a finicky 30-378, that may get traded- (shoots awesome with 168's and 180's--struggles with 210 bergers and 190 bergers--and doing a 30 Nosler on a tikka 695 I've got laying around...

I'll be using a Tikka T3x action. Problem with the tikka is the COAL is limited by the short length of the opening on bottom of the actions receiver -- even with AI mags a coal of 3.4 barely clears the front of the feed ramp.

Berger has load data for the 30 Nos for the 215 hybrid (unpublished but avail if you call) with a coal of 3.47 -- def better than what you can get with SAAMI coal of 3.340. HOWEVER, I found a work around.

I've designed a custom bottom metal that bumps the mag well on the bottom metal back 0.050" towards the trigger housing that allows a COAL of 3.500+. Still not quite as good as the 3.6+ you could do with a wyatts extended using a diff action -- but for my goals and purposes I'm happy with it.

This bottom metal is patterned off the short action Tikka CTR DBM that runs trg22 mags -- essentially a CTR bottom metal for long/mag cartridges. Instead of AI mags, it accepts the TRG42 magazine. I've had a prototype 3D printed in plastic and the fit and feed is far superior.

Very innovative, Spencer.

Can this bottom metal be reproduced? Have you patented it yet? I'm going to let a guy we both know about this.

PTG has agreed to one-off a handful of these for personal use to validate design and fit (will initially put it on the 280ai) -- then may moved forward with patenting and a production run. I've also met with a local manufacturer about a production run as well.

I opened up the inlet on the 280ai for the plastic prototype and it's looking promising

Thanks amigo. Tikka also widened and lengthened the ejection port on the T3x so it'll be easier to eject an unfired round with boolits seated out long.

Updates and photos to follow as the build progresses...
