That sucks man!!! I'm sure she'll still shoot like a champ.

Thanks for the info on the Wyatt's box. I hope the Rem 700 is the same length.

Well I used this mishap as an excuse to get another barrel. I'll end making a 280 AI out of the original barrel for my wife and I ordered another Krieger but in a #14 Heavy Palma 1:9 5r LOL. I think it'll look better being a heavy contour for this project anyway.

MudRunner,
I have for 20 years been loading a box of 20 with four rounda that fit the magazine and the rest longer to my pefered seating depth. With my 700 Rem I load the short one first in the mag then the longer one which sticks out into the ramp area. I load one in the chamber and go to the woods. I have never in 20 years needed the third round, but even jumping it would be in the kill zone. Just my inexspensive solution.

I love the .280AI.....My next build will be a 700 .280AI for whitetails.

That is a good idea... I might have to look into that.

I'm also gonna check into that Wyatt entended mag well.

That Wyatt extended mag says it requires modifications to the reciever to be able to use it with it functioning properly...

Is this true, or is that their way of saying you MIGHT need to modify it?

Yes you have to machine the bottom of the receiver to open it up and you shorten the bolt stop as well. If I can get my pictures loaded for my build I have pictures showing me doing exactly that.
