    That magical .2175 diameter seems to be difficult to find.
    Now I did find a 5.5 mm one that comes out to be like .2179 or something but I think it would still be too big.
    So yeah I'll probably start looking for a machine shop around town to see if they can and how much it would be.
    For $9.95 shipped free Amazon rocks.
    May want to slug your barrel.

    You can pick up a few soft lead sinkers and drive them through your barrel with a wood dowel.

    The diameter between the deep grooves of the slug will give you your bore diameter.
    To speak without thinking is to shoot without aiming.

    On guard.....
    I've got another 2 months left before the stamps come back for the 5.56 can coming.
    Moving around the two .30 caliber mounts was needed because I have one coming back any day now.
    But that's a neat idea. I've heard the term before but never really gave it much thought as I had no need.

    I'll have 3 5.56 guns when done. Might be neat to slug all three and see what we see.
    How accurate is that method?
