Lynn and John,
I didn't want to forget to thank you for taking the time to respond and help me with this. I appreciate you sharing your experiences.

Why don't you send me your new barrel block stock instead .
Did you open up the chamber a little bit by polishing it out? I have heard the brass is very good stuff but extremely hard to get.I guess thats why everyone is getting once fired?
I only need 2 pieces of the brass.I would like to measure it up and see what kind of volume it has.Are your coming up to Sacramento at the end of the month for the 1,000 yard match?
On the NBRSA patches there was a communication problem.The patches only went out to the Top 10 finishers not the top 20 like we heard at the match.The NBRSA is soley in charge of the awards not the club holding the match and didn't get the awards to us until friday of the match.Nobody confirmed who would be getting patches top 10 or top 20 so we ended up with 10 shooters in a bad mood my father included.Jim sent the top 10 patches out within 3 weeks of the match.

I have 6 pieces of once fired 6x47sm sitting on my counter, waiting to be shipped to you.
PM me your address, and they will be on their way to you.
the case above the head measures .474
the casehead itself measures .470

John Adams is sending myself a couple pieces to look at but thanks for the offer.
I sure wish he would send me his new stock but that isn't likely to happen.It is a carbon Fiber masterpiece and is light as a feather.I actually remember seeing it in the classifieds.If I had known then what it looks like now I would have bought it.

Here is the latest. After resizing with a small base redding .308 die, the case still hangs up (I would estimate it needs another .0005) on the last 1/8th inch of the chamber at the base. Lynn, I agree that a good polishing would probably do it, but I'm not gonna mess with a brand new, beatiful chamber.
I'm officially going to call it a day on this problem. I think that if you had a reamer cut to fit this brass, you'd probably be a happy clam, but it certainly cannot be simply made to work in my chamber, so I won't even get a chance to see if the brass sticks or not.

John the brass showed up today and I wanted to Thank You!!!
It is a impressive looking cartridge.I am going to dig a little deeper into it before I order up reamers and dies.It appears one can simply run a 6X47 SM reamer into an existing 6BR chamber and not worry about the bulge you normaly get due to the cases natural taper near the shoulder.I have a half dozen test barrels with low round counts on them that would make good guinnea pigs.
