    melonited drop port Neuvo?

    I'm still looking for a .473 bf drop port Neuvo, or something equally fast/slick that doesn't ding necks.

    new or used, don't care

    Al, the drop ports that Bullet Central has in stock are all, (I think), PPC bolt face.

    From what I understand, the ejector models are generic bolt face while the drop port most be either PPC or BR.

    Welll'p, looks like nobody is interested in selling theirs and the latest estimate is at least January before any new ones are available...... but Dwight Scott convinced me a right eject will fit my bill nicely


    So my question is off the table. I'm gonna' try yet ANOTHER right eject. Good news is, it'll fit my railgun if nothing else!

    thanx guys

    Interestingly, Dwight is the first person in 10yrs who hasn't said I was barking spider crazy...... he not only understood my problem but clearly and neatly explained how the combination of horizontal lugs (vertical raceways) and an oversized bolt body eliminate my problem...... it's fun to talk with folks who don't assume you're just making stuff up ....... and the old "nobody else ever complains about this and they GOT RECORDS........."


    I really thought the Kelbly manual eject was the answer to my prayers, until I stuck a hot case in the guy's ear off to my right LOL.....big difference between practice and shooting

    Al,

    I think I might have an idea, but what was your problem and how did the horizontal lugs and oversized bolt correct it?

    I noticed on the BC website that on the Neuvo listings there are 6ppc/BR bolt faces available. Will these Neuvo dropports
    with 6ppc/30br BF cycle a 30BR case? Maybe someone will clarify. Just askin.....

    AFAIK there are no drop ports available for a long time and the ones listed as PPC/BR bolface are side eject.

    I bought one

    couldn't be happier

    I've only "tried it out" not actually run it at speed...... but it's inch oh five tenon and 18tpi so I've screwed a bunch of barrels into it (they're tight, it's smaller diameter than most) and cycled cases all the way up to 6.5 CM which bounced around a bit but they came out clean until you hit 'er hard. 1 out of 10 I got to bounce back into the action. I don't own a 30BR but IMO they'd fly out like bats from a limestone cave.

    I also ran a bunch of 6X47L's (I already chambered a bbl for it, haven't even built the gun LOL) and couldn't get one to stick
