    Yeah I now know it can be done. Open up the bolt face. And mess with the feeding ramps is what I was told what has to be done. But with all that work it would be easyer to just buy a custom action.

    Not if you are having him true-up your action, while he rebarrels it. Shouldn't cost much more, if you are having him do all the rest of the work to the gun.

    Pretty sure your feed rails might be okay. If you went to a RUM you would have to widen feed rails. As for feeding this would be the perfect time to get a Wyatt's mag box installed and then see how it feeds. You really need the extra length the Wyatt's box provides.

    This is true. Make sure you get the one that extends to 4.000".

    There is another option.

    A 280 AI would fit in your receiver and bolt without any alterations.

    The 280 AI can exceed the 7mm rem mag with bullets up to 160 grains and is known for its accuracy.

    It is very popular with the F class crowed (600 and 1000 yard shooting) and does well with 180 grain
    bullets.

    It is not as powerful as the 7 STW or the 7 RUM but it is very good on Elk and deer.

    If it is set up correctly it can be very accurate with factory 280 ammo during fire forming. some hunt
    with the factory 280 ammo and fire form at the same time.

    Just a thought.

    Could I shoot the 168 Bergers out of the 280ai? And if so what fps would you lose over the stw?
