Looking for a muzzle device to tip my 6x45. I've got a first generation Smith Vortex(5.56, not 7.62) in my parts box...as well as a standard bird cage. The bird cage would work no doubt...but, hey, it's a custom build, right?
I can drop the shank of a 17/64" through the Vortex from the thread end...although it stops at the mouth(exit hole). Perhaps a bur or ridge from cutting/milling. Haven't determined yet. It will pass a .243 SMK. Should I have heartburn with this? Is .022 over too tight for consideration? Should I have a smithy run it out? Or should I just get a thread protector and call it good for now?
