wyat box mags

I was wondering if anyone had personal experience with Wyat box mags. I am building a 300RUM and its time to order a reamer. I dont want to order till I know a OAL and the good and bad of straight vs staggered feed versions. Also can someone tell me what it intails to install.

Re: wyat box mags

The Wyatts boxes are very nice and give you a little extra. They do require a slight amount of machining on the action at the rear of the box area. This requires a milling machine to do properly. Good luck.

Re: wyat box mags

I put one in my 300 RUM 700 LA. I did it myself and it came out OK, but a having a knowledgeable smith machine it would be a better option. It's nice to have the option to seat bullets to 4" OAL--get the RUM on the lands, you know?

I can only put 2 down instead of 3 now.

Once you get the controlled center feed 'wings' adjusted (can take some time and tinkering), you should be good to go.

Good luck.
