Re: mag box for 700 action?
I also have detachable Mag Rem 700 SS and I have had lots of problems with the clips. I had to file them down to get them to work reaonably smoothly but even then, when it's cold and the mag is full, it's hard to get them snapped in or out. Gloves or mitts make things worse. If the damn thing didn't shoot so well, and If I hadn't spent so much truing the action and bolt face, pillar bedding it, etc., I'd sell it and buy one with a hinged floor plate. Plus, I find I'm always panicking about losing my clips. I have two, and even so I still grope for them every now and then, worried I left tham at camp, lost them, etc. Off thread here, but my .02 cents.
