Is it posible to use a 700 rem. long action on a 308 ps barrel. I have an extra rem 700 action that was on a 270 and have a ps 308 barrel. Without having to spend more money on another action I'd like to use this one. Any comments would be appreciated.
...one of the smiths here could advise you correctly, but for sure you could ream to 30-06 & be good to go; might run into feeding issues with shorter 308 round, but not for sure... merry christmas to ya'... Larry
Yes you can use the action for 308. YOu have to have a 308 follower and spring for the long mag box. Also needed is a magazine filler block, to take up the space for the shorter case. I have done lots of them with short cases.
