Thread: 30-06 case?

  1. #1

    30-06 case?

    I'm trying to save a few quid by making a bore guide for cleaning my Parker hale .308.
    i have some plastic pipe that would fit over the rear end of a .308 case, but obviously this would stop me sliding the case into the chamber.

    wondering how much longer a 30-06 case is, am I right in thinking it should fit into the chamber with some sticking back (so I could sleeve the tube over this part of the case)?

    most importantly, anyone got a couple of cases they would be willing to let me have

    thanks a load,

    mike

    it wont fit, easier and probably better to get a dedicated propper bore guide they are only 18 odd quid

    yes it will fit and you can use a 308 case if you want

    I made one with a .270 case and held the hose on with fine wire squeezing the tube into the extractor groove.
    then just trim the flared edge down

    think how much of the case sits in the face of the bolt? enough to hold in a hose
    also benefits from a flared neck to provide a slightly tighter fit.
    I cut a small square out of the side for adding solvent to patch once loaded in the tube

    18!
    cost me 18p

    good picture and does demonstarte the idea very well, is it a simple static fit or glued on ?

    I use the wooden A.J. Parker type of chamber guides. Busy trying to have a batch made up...

    The 30-06 case idea is a good one though!
