I just picked up a factory Rem. sporter barrel in 300 wsm
. I have a Rem. short action with .308 bolt face. I assume it can be converted to a magnum? Also, do I need to find a magnum recoil lug? I'm sure my gunsmith can answer these questions, just thought I should find out ahead of time. BTW, I'm trying to make a light, semi-long range gun. Basically, the poor man's version of a rifle that most of you are familiar with!
