I think fiftydriver said he got the 338 lapua to fit into the 700 box magazine but I could be wrong.
The 408 cheytac would definitely not fit into the 700! And it is what I would call pretty radical.
There is a version that doesn't involve fireforming. You can design anything you want if you are ok with designing and paying $200 for a reamer. It is a good idea to have your own reamer made even if you're not doing something radical in my opinion.
You might look real serious into a 338 edge or a 338 ultra mag. Great rounds without a lot of fuss.
