Re: Long Action vs. short Action

Well if it shoots that good and you are not concerned about shooting it as a repeater, I wouldnt sweat the long case on the short action. Just MHO. Welcome to this great sport!

PS, the 280 is a fine cartridge. Even though I like short cases to for guys to learn on, for a long case, it is one I would highly recomend to cut your teeth in on. It is accurate, forgiving and has plenty of energy for any of north american species. Watch the distance on elk and big bears. Other than that, it is a sweet performer.

All of the 40X's are SA. Even the 300 Win. Mag.

I never heard of a 40X repeater in any of the long cartridges. All of the repeaters, I've seen, are chambered in the SA family of cases.

Re: Long Action vs. short Action

I was on the remington web site recently and they offer a 40x 300 win mag in repeater. One would assume that there are some in long action??

After a quick tour of the Remington website (Custom Shop Area) it looks as if Remington is offering the 40X in 7 RUM, 300 RUM, as well as 7STW. I'm sure the repeaters of this model are on the long action. You learn something new everyday.
