Longer magazine

I have a Sendero 300RUM, I am still playing around with bullet OAL's, but had a question for the ones smarter then I, do you think it would be possible to make the magazine longer in this gun, the reason for this is for the handloads that are longer then the magazine, I really don't want to make my rifle into a single shot. Would it be worth the money if it can be done????
Something tells me it might be spendy.
And yes I am obsessing over accuracy and getting my bullet as close to the lands as possible.

They're not fancy, just stamped stainless steel. I don't know what a gunsmith would charge to install one. It's something you can do yourself if you have a mill or a steady hand and a file. Here are the basic instructions: INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

Re: Longer magazine

Should not be to bad to do. Your acouple of 1/10`s of an inch shorter than the 06 and you should be able to just switch out magizines for that much.
