Rem sendero/ Edge conversion help

The rifle is a Remington Sendero SF II .300 UM w/ the HS precision stock that I am turning into a .338 Edge. I am more than likely going with a 30" Broughton 5C barrel. What is the largest contour that I can use with this stock? Also, recommendations on a muzzle break. I have read until my eyes bled trying to gain as much info I could before posting, and appreciate the help.

The next question is on the Wyatt magazine box. I only plan on shooting the 300 grain bullets and am unsure weather to go with the CFE 9 ( OAL 4.00) or the CFE 12 (OAL 3.825). What can I get away with this stock and not have the gunsmith to upset fitting it.

I am sure that i will have more questions down the road as this project progresses. Thanks in advance.

I would suggest you pick a smith. Your paying him to work those details and give you advice you also end up with a set of specs you both work up.

Great idea. I would just stick with the profile you have its what alot of guys use on their EDGE. Its just a rebarrel and a mag box then no need to waste extra money changing profle.

Maybe this will help .

Measure your barrel at the shank(Dia and Length) then the Dia.at the muzzle.

Armed with these dimensions look at the barrel contour charts of the barrel maker you
want to use and try to match the dimensions of each. I normally increase the contour #
up one size. This size increase does not cause any problems opening up the barrel channel
slightly.

Most barrel makers have a "Sendero" contour and you can ask for the next size up or
stay with that contour.

Barrel makers have different numbers on the same size contours so i will not give you a lilja #
because it won't be the same as a shillen, hart or any other barrel .I have three different
brands of barrels that are the same size, One is a #8,one is a 5.5 and one is a #15.

Hope this helps.

Not a problem. Yes, JE helped me. I'm still unsure as to how much of the stock can be removed and still be functional. I want to put the largest contour I can in the stock.

Thank you for the help.
