longest magazine, Rem. 700, Mdl 70, 110 Savage, M77 Ruger??

As some know im building a 300 WBY repeater, and i want to be able to make a full length load with 210 Bergers and Sierras and have it work in the magazine. I know i can do this with a 700 Remington using a Wyatt magazine box, but i was wondering if any of the other popular actions came with a longer action than a 700?? something that would work with a 3.770" or so OAL? maybe a Savage chambered for the RUM?
thanks!
Dan

    The Savage comes up a little short. I was looking into the same thing this week and found this thread.

    Sako makes some pretty hefty long actions, might have to go to a custom action like a Baer to get thte lenght you're looking for.

    My rem 700 LSS will handle shells up to 3.7" but they are tight fit. They have a hard time chambering, you gotta do it fast and hard. The shells I tested today were the 180g btips at a length of 3.690" Seem to work fine.
