I have been shooting AR length ammo in my Stevens 200 and getting pretty decent results. The mag box is longer in the Stevens so I seated some bullets farther out just for it and shot a few. It shot better with the longer cartridge oal. I will try to post some pix. Plateau Hunter

No it is my reloads. The load is about 26.8g of Win 748. I use a Lil Dandy powder measure to throw small rifle loads so that particular load is two throws of rotor #15. Using the lil dandy and a good metering ball powder makes for fast, accurate powder dispensing but you have to pay attention to what you are doing. Those pix are from my cell phone so not the best quality. Plateau Hunter

I've just been playing with load length on a couple of my rifles this past week and it's interesting how just 5 thousandths of an inch can take a dog of a load into a gnat shooter. Looks like you're getting good results.
