Browning ABolt

Can a 300 Win Mag Browning ABolt be re-barreled for 338 edge or 338 RUM?

    Yes, mag length may be an issue though. 338 rum would be the better fit.

    Thanks for the reply. I know the Mag length will be an issue with the larger bullets. I am leaning towards the 338 rum.

    I read somewhere that you can just put a 375 H&H magazine onto your floorplate and extend your magazine length over 1/4 inch. I've never personally tried it but it supposedly works.

    I will look into the 375 trick also. It may just be cheaper to go buy the caliber I want! Can't have too many guns. Thanks
