Howdy,

Would anyone with an AXMC and a fitted 308 conversion kit be able to answer a couple of questions please -

  1. With the conversion kit fitted, is the bolt travel of the .308 bolt as long as the .300/.338 bolts or is it shorter ?
  2. Does the conversion kit use standard AW magazines with the adaptor in place or are they another type of magazine ?

Thanks very much.

Thanks mate - much appreciated.
Yes, standard AW magazines. My understanding though is the new ASR magazines (for short action cals)have built in spacers, to make them larger. They do not need an adapter, and are backwards comparable to the axmc.

How about custom spacers for other magazines?
I would like a spacer for ZB30 8x57 20 round magazines for 6.5x55 barrels.

No one commercially makes a spacer or such outside of the factory short-action cartridge mag-well adapter specifically for AW mags.

Another question...

In what situations do you need to get a Small Firing Pin Bolt ? And when will the regular bolt body be fine ?
Running anything but factory 308 loads in my experience.

I never popped a primer but modest 6.5 Creed loads made my primers look like a meteor impact crater.

6mm Creed was worse.

Got a Sfp bolt and everything looks great without changing anything else
