I have a few questions for ya's i have been thinkning of rebarelling my 308 rem700sa for a while now and i'd like to go to the 300WSM. it seems doable being the cases are close. and the bolt will have to be opened up and a sako extractor put in.
But here is the question i asked a gentlemen(whom i consider to have alot of knowledge about rifles ) about the conversion and it was said better off to go buy a REM LA than use the short action I'M CONFUSED isn't the 300wsm supposed to be made for a short action and also he mentioned about feeding issues (not reliable )
I guess if its not a good deal to do that
i will buy a new donor but i would really like to use the sa action i have.
I would like your views and opinions good and bad i assume he's probably right but would like to know why or why not ( the bullet i want to use is a 190smk or 200smk ). [img]images/icons/confused.gif[/img]

I have one that was built a few months ago by Chris. I shoot the 190 SMK's. I can post the particulars here if you wish or feel free to contact me via e-mail and I can fill you in.
I have posted results of targets I shot today with this combination in Bullets, Barrels and Ballistics.
Wyo and chris thank you very much. i will get the barrel pulled and do the bolt myself shouldn't be to hard. get a wyatt from brownells and send the action out to pacnor
whom i contacted originally and let them put a new tube on it then finish the gun up.
wyo post away on your results cant wait to hear about them.
also where do i look to get the email address off this board for ya.
