action question for .284 jazz,300 norma

Im getting ready to have a 7stw barrel build by kreiger but started see some 300 normas and .284 jazz. Will these work with a rem 700 long action? Thanks

    The 700 will work, but it's definitely not ideal. Personally, I would rather have an action that was built for the .338 Lapua than use a weaker action when dealing with anything built off of the 300 or 338 Norma. The stronger actions ensure the stiffer barreled action, which greatly aids in accuracy. This is extremely important if you use a heavier barrel, longer barrel, and/or suppressor. The top of my list is the Surgeon XL (if you can find one that is) and Kirby's Raptor. Good luck.

    I agree, get a heavier action. I went with a badger 2013 built for the my norma build. The norma case is technically a super magnum case. It has a lot of power and pressures, why risk having a rupured reciever.

    I used a Wby Mark V action for my 300 Jazz build. I have no complaints.

    This is a great recommendation. This was my second choice.

    I used the 700 action to build my 284 THOR (284 JAZZ). I used a Lapua sized bolt face from PT&G.
    Works just fine with the setup I have. Very accurate.
    Yes there are stronger actions. The 700 Remington is just fine for this round.
