Re: Can a 700 SA be chambered in a WSM ??

I bought thru Brownell a follower for a SAUM Remington. The box magazine for a BDL type Rem also came from Brownell. I took out material behind the factory box and had room to install and still not radically change the action. Two things did happen: dropped the front screw from the trigger guard and need to remove the box magazint to make trigger adjustments since very little room between magazine and trigger housing. Magazine follower change cured problems in feeding, and longer box allowed seating out to 2.950 or so. Just be sure to set up throat to meet OAL so you don't have a big jump into the lands.
