    headspace question

    I built a yugo stamped receiver M70 and since it wasn't a matching # kit the headspace is off.

    Weird thing is the bolt closes on a no go guage and will close with force on a live round.

    I'm using a Mason Reamers no go guage, but why would it close on a no go guage and be tight on a live round?

    your round could be out of speck or the throat is tight or dirty something a guage does not touch. what conditon is the barrel many yugo,s are pretty bad look for corosion in the throat.
