    Not by much though!

    0.25" = 6.35MM

    Yes you can.
    They recommend the sl5 .25 for the 6.5x55.

    I guess if you can drop a 6.5 bullet through it then its OK.

    Just hope the 6.5 bullet doesn't catch & tip up inside there!

    Get a vernier and measure the hole I.D as 6.35mm as stated sounds wrong it's too small for a .25 mod I would expect an exit hole size of about 7.5mm if it is 6.35mm it's been machined undersized

    You can use the SL5 but thread concentricity to the bore is crucial and aslong as the hole is a good size

    6.5/6.7 mm bullet and an exit hole of 7.5 mm leaves 1/2mm clearence eigher side of the bullet or just under so that's why the above is crucial

    if you Baught a .30 cal SL5 exit hole would be about 8.7mm

    Hello again Doug , I recently (as I think you know?) bought an old m55 308 as a bit of a project. I had a sonic mod sitting about proofed for 7 RM, o/d 7.8mm ish. Spoke to Valkerie about me drilling it out (my friend on his company's cnc drill/mill thingy) I suggested 8.5mm and he confered. This was promptly done and test fired and checked ; all good. Not sure if you could do the same to your mod?
