Re: New long range rifle

You didnt mention what caliber the action was originally made for?
If it was a magnum (.532-.534 or around that number) then yes, however you'll have to open the feed rails for proper feeding.
The 300 Ultra will work fine, try and find some posts on here concerning bullet selection for twist and velocity requirements.

Re: New long range rifle

Instead of messing with the action to fit an Ultra-mag, you could sell me the action and buy an new Ultra-mag.
