Look at my numbers on the caliper.

Base to lands on the IMBEL barrel is more than a tenth of an inch longer than can be obtained when loading to magazine length.


But, you get the base to SHOULDER dimension off by more than a hundredth of an inch, and you'll be dealing with a bolt that won't close (if too long), or you'll get head separations (if too short).

Ask me about the Mason-Dixon FAL Collectors Association.
