Re: Increasing a 700 SA's magazine's length to accept longer cartridges?

Unfortunately no one makes a bottom metal for browning A- bolts that I know of AICS or otherwise.....I shoot AICS magazines in my rem 700 actions and would love them for my A-bolts.

I bought some alpha mags for my ruger scout rifle and they don't feed as well as the AICS.

All I have been able to do is to open up the front of my A-bolt magazines with a dremel tool to seat the bullets longer.....Mabel someday there will be a better solution for us browning fans.

Sorry for the newb question but are AICs magazines a general type or the company who makes them?

AICS stands for Accuracy International Chasis System and its a stock setup for a couple different rifle action types. Accuracy Int. is the company. AI makes mags for their AICS and so do several other manufacturers. Several companies make bottom metal for remington 700's that accept AI mags, and there are several companies that make mags that fit in AI clone systems.
