338 edge mag box

My buddy and I built a couple of 338 edges this past year. They are built as single shots.

We are thinking about building a couple of more and would like to make them repeaters. Are the wyatt's box's a good solution? And is one preferred over the other? ie the 0.110 vs the 0.300 extenstion?

Thanks again

Saw Kevin Wyatt at the SHOT show, he is making some really nice detachable bottom metal and mags that would work very well.
Also saw Glenn Seekins new stuff, although not fully in production right now, the proto types look excellent and are 3.90" long so you could run 300 gr SMKs long seated.

I have a Wyatt's detachable mag system on my 338 Edge Shawn Carlock built me.The mags will allow bullets seated out to 3.8",and they hold 9 rounds of RUM ammo.I took my rifle out last week for the first time,and had no problems with feeding whatsoever.I also talked with Wyatt at the shot show,and he told me he was coming out with a new 5rd mag.I'm going to pick up a couple of those too.
