I just replaced the barrel with a 30-06 barrel. When I headspaced it, at 1 click from fully screwed in to extension, it was not in lock up. At 2 clicks, it was. I was expecting around 11. I went 2 clicks past lock up for a total of 4 for 30-06. Does this sound right? I’ve headspaced twice with same results and everything is together correctly and functional.

I’m not positive but you are probably right, I run my 308 four clicks from full tight and it runs great, I tried six and I immediately had a case separation so four it is for 308 on mine

When you fire the first round, stop and compare the length of the fired case to the length of of an unfired case. If your headspace is too long, the fired case will have stretched quite a bit. Just a nice safety check when going "hot".
