Limitations on actions?

Is it OK to build a magnum LRH rifle using a standard, (non-magnum), action?

Will standard actions hold up to the magnum pressures?

Thanks in advance for any info you can share.

In most cases, yes, standard actions will handle magnum pressures. Most actions are built identically between standard and magnum. The only differenct is the bolt face itself.
