pretty much the same as a push feed with the firing pin removed when measuring chamber headspace and bolt face to lands - only difference for me with the Deviant is it helps to load the case head in the bolt face before testing bolt closure. Seat the case on the bolt and then deliver both into the receiver. You have to keep the case in position with something in the mag well as you slide it forward into the chamber. Can be frustrating though - if the case head slips out of the bolt face you start over.

Interesting thanks. Still miles better than my Browning A-bolt, bolt.

I quite like my a-bolt 2 bolt. Not a fan of the ab3 though.
Mine cycles great, short lift. It's just a bear to disassemble.  Got stuck at 95% apart and could not get a pin out and ended up putting it all back together.

I have a Mauser action made in Belgium that I have mounted in a McMillin Hunter Bench Rest Stock.  It has had a Bell & Carlson 243 Win. a Hart tight neck 308 and now a Lilja 6 BR-Norma no neck turn chamber.  I have added a Delrin 3: piece to the front.  The extractor was worked on by my gunsmith to make it go over the case rim easier and the trigger lightened to 14 oz.  With no magazine chambering is still not super smooth but it shoots Berger 88 gr Flat Base Match bullets just sub 0.5 MOA when I do my part.
