    Re: 300 WSM feed from magazine

    I have a Remington model 700 SPS 270 WSM. It is accurate as heck but I have had feed issues. Remington sent at no charge a new spring and follower and much of the issue has been resolved. It still does not feel as smooth as I would like when chambering a round and I may have a local gunsmith take a look. I have not had additional jams but because it still feels like something is binding I believe it still needs work. I have really started to like this round and I also like the gun but the feed issue was a sour note in other wise a great rifle. Dano

    I have a Savage 11 FCNS and have had zero feeding issues. It has the detachable box magazine so it's easy to carry an additional loaded magazine.

    Big bump needed here.

    I'm trying to figure out which mags to use for my future 7mm WSM build. I'm looking at either 300WM or 338LM (must be long action).

    I'm wondering if the 300WM magazine is wide enough for the WSM body. Also, does anyone know if the 338LM mag is too wide? Would the mag lips need modifying?


    Thanks!
    Kevin

    Shouldn't be a problem due to the fact that the WSM's are exactly the same diameter as the belt on the the casing. The Lapua would also work w/o issue.
