You can get extended mag boxes for 700 actions. Wyatt's makes them in a 3.82" and a 3.99" Inside to inside. Not too hard to install if you have something like a Dremel. I seat the the 230's in my 300 RUM 700 action to just off the lands in my rifle and they just fit into the 3.82" mag box. If I had a longer throat, I could seat them a little farther out easily with the longer box.
I'm sure you could run the 215's or the 230's with H4831 sc. It would probably work best with the 215's. Retumbo or H1000 would probably get you better velocity and I've always got better velocity with Retumbo over H1000. Some guys like Retumbo better and some H1000.
If you can get some 215's, there's always guys looking for 210's. They shouldn't be too hard to sell.
Congrats on a good hunt!
