Re: 348 ackley

I just was looking up the "little Improved case...it seems that someone has already figured it out. The 450 Fuller or Fulton??? put some taper back into the AI and it improved the feeding in the leverguns. It would not make any difference in the Siamese Mauser. Of course now I am chasing ideas and t...

Re: 348 ackley

Leverluver Good info on the feeding. It seems like there are many variations for any chambering. Any thoughts on just improving the the 348 chamber just a little, I mean do not blow it out to the point it does not chamber well, or is that just defeating the purpose. I think the "fully improved 375 a...

348 ackley

Does any one know of any gunsmiths doing 348 Ackley improved chambers? I had thought about the Alaskan conversion for the Browning 71 but now thinking that is too much work....that might be a good one for a Siamese Mauser. Any thoughts....and No I am not going to butcher the Winchester 71.

Winchester conversion

Hello, new to the site.
I have a win 71 and a big bore 94 that I have been thinking about convert to 416 Alaskan. The Big bore is a 375, so maybe a 375-348 there. Any thought and landmines to watch out for? I really don't NEED either, just want one.
