I have 2 AR's with the Wylde chamber. It is not necessarily for the 90 grain bullets as it is a bit too short. John Holliger modifies the Wylde slightly with a tad longer throat in order to use the JLK 90. None of the 80's or 90's are meant for magazine length feeding. All have to be single loaded and are loaded long.

can you use 77gr BTHP's in this chamber because they will fit in mag, or is it to long.

DPMS make a mag to load 80s seated long. I dont know how long, though. You can purchase one here (they are a board sponsor):

Competition Shooting Sports

Just go to the AR15 shop and look at the magazines.

Yes, the Sierra 77 will shoot just fine in this chamber at mag. length.

These are the old Long Range Products (LRP) mags.

A couple of things about them.

First, they use a proprietary bolt catch which when used will not allow you to use USGI mags. Second, they can be tricky to load and keep loaded. Three, they ain't cheap, at least they used not to be.

These mags. came out several years ago and at the time the heavy mag. length loaded bullets were not available. Now, that is a different story.
