sendero 300 wm action and 338 edge

Is a remington sendero 300 wm action long enough to build an edge or possiably a 338 ultra on down the road?

    My buddy is building a 338 Lapua Mag from a Remington 700 Sendero Action in 300win Mag. Gun used to be mine but he bought it off me to build a Lapua. Gunsmith said it was doable

    I built my edge from a savage 110 it was a 300 mag and I just built my buddy a 338 rum on a savage also have a 300 rum barrel will be here tomarrow and a 375 rum on the way from mcgowen all will be on savage actions yours shuld be fine might have to. Put in a longer mag box if you want a repeter and have it chamberd for the +.050 if you want to shoot 300 gr bullets mine is standerd and the bullet is seated deep into case but I manly shoot 250gr hpbt at 3100 fps easy with 90 grs of 7828 with bullet just tuching lands

    In order for it to be a repeater, you will have to order a Wyatt's 4.000" magazine box, and will have to have a smith mill out the bottom of the reciever to be able to properly utilize the full-length mag box.

    I have been doing the same research for my Sendero SF 7mmSTW, since I want to run my Berger 180's to the lands, and I can't do that with the stock mag box. I can get close, but as we all know, close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades...

    I'm getting better rusults out of 3 of the 4 calibers running them to the lands (4th being a Weatherby, so I can't run them to the lands with the amount of freebore it has).

    My .308 is getting the best results pushing the 210's up against the lands and pretty much press-fitting them when I lock the bolt down.

    When I sit my 180's out in my STW and shoot them single-shot I get better results, than with the lengths that will currently fit inside my magazine box. Same with my A-Bolt II 7Mag.
