Accuracy International stock on a 300 RUM

Does anyone have any info on whether an Accuracy International Stock will work with a 300 RUM (Rem 700 LA). Any problems with the detachable magazine and so on?

Re: Accuracy International stock on a 300 RUM

I shoot at a range where they sell AI stocks, and the only rounds that fit in the detachable mag are the ones based on a 300 win mag. the shoulder on the RUM is too far forward to work in the mag. this is what i have been told, someone may know better than I.

I build a bunch of 338 Lapuas in the Rem/ AICS combination. The Lapua magazine might feed the RUM.

If it is a magazine feed problem then an alteration to the magazine may be a cure? Does anyone have any further info on this? Thanks for the help guys.

The rifle and stock are on the way. Hoping this all works out. My buddy thinks it will be a go but a small modification to the action to adjust for a change in the feed lips of the magazine will be required. This will prohibit the use of the action in other stocks (other than an AICS) because the modification is to the feed ramp area. Still hoping to get input from someone that has accomplished this already or that has any input. Thanks.

You won't have to change the feed ramp at all. The lips of the mag might need bent in a tiny bit. Put it together and try it first before you start modifying stuff.

Tried a RUM case in an AI Lapua magazine today and it will not work. The lips are fine but the shoulder of the RUM case hit's two indentations on the mag. Without a large bit of modifying, I'm afraid your stuck witha stock that won't work with your caliber.
