Re: Max Rem 700 SA OACL
COAL for the Remington 7mm SAUM is, I believe, 2.8252. Your 2.86xx is, IMO, within the range I'd expect the magazine to accept. Reloaders will often stretch those factory dimensions when they are using OAL at the ogive to establish a seating depth referencing the lands and I'll bet some of their loads (depending on bullet selected) would press the edges of that magazine to some degree. Unless the magazine's size is creating a loading problem I wouldn't be concerned. But it wouldn't hurt to consult your gunsmith and ask the question and get the answer from the horse's mouth.
