Re: my next 30 cal

hate to double post as it pisses me off when others do it and it seems this thread has died (because you guys answered my questions) but now that I have decided on a .300NM, WHERE DO I START?!

Id like to go off a factory action because they are cheaper and I have plenty of them to start with and pawn shops have PLENTY

Is it safe to open up a regular 700 action up to the correct bolt face diameter for the .300norma? I know it uses the same bolt face as a .338lm and didnt know if it could be done safely.

Are there any factory rifles that chamber the .300 norma or atleast the .338 norma?
