Re: .243 action length
Probably not, but stranger things have happened. Depends on the throat of the rifle. I have a model 7 Rem and with the 95grn SST's they just fit in the magazine. It is a bit shorter than a normal short action though. There may be an after market magazine you could install that would help in your predicament. One of the rifle builders should know.
