Re: question about 700 ultra mag actions

I just tried an experiment and two loaded .300 Ultra cartridges fit inside my detachable mag box with ample clearance. They look like they should feed okay, but perhaps not??

Re: question about 700 ultra mag actions

I have not been able to get a hold of him today, but we will be going over to his place in a little while so I'll find out then.

The 4.1" box is for a model 70 Winchester magnum action though, a bit longer than the 700 box. The 700 box, I'm almost positive is 3.91", but I cannot remember if that is ID. or OD. for sure.

Re: question about 700 ultra mag actions

HH.338,

I just got off the phone with my brother, he told me his Wyatt box for his M70 has a huge 4.1" internal opening.

I have Brownells old catalog, my father has the new one. He has a paper that has the dimentions on it for all the new mags that came with his. He is going to call me in a while. It is a Wyatt box though.

I'll let you know after a bit what the dims are for sure. You want the one with the triangle window cuts on both sides though.

Re: question about 700 ultra mag actions

HH.338,

I wasn't able to measure the box my brother had for his M70 that he says is 4.1", it is at the gunshop. I wonder if he has the 3.91" confused with 4.1" because I don't see one on the sheet here for one "that" long.

The box it 3.91", like I thought, but this is outside dimentions, so you ca subtract a total of .100" for the likely .050" thick steel at each end. Now we are at 3.81", which happens to be about .130" longer than my 300 Ultra box. I wondered if 3.91" was the outside dimention, and it was. I would call Wyatts and see if this is the largest they have, my dad said they don't show one for the Rem 700 in the Brownells catalog he has, he just found that they did when my brother got his winchester box and it had these others on the paper inside, maybe they have even more too.

Here is a copy they send of what needs to be done to fit one in and the mags available at the time. Good luck.
