338 Edge Question

I am thinking about building the 338 Edge but I have a few question before I start.
I will either be using a Savage or Remington 700 action for the project.
My question is..Will the standard long action magazine be long enough to make this gun a repeater or will I have to make some mods to the stock and or magazine for the bullets to fit?
Please give any advice that you may have.
Thanks in advance

Re: 338 Edge Question

Two guys have EDGES for sale here right now if you realy want one I would just buy one of theres. I only sugest this beacuse if you are going to have it built be prepared to wait a year plus for your rifle to be finished.

I dont know the exact awnser to your question but I think it is no beacuse everyone who builds one uses a Wayatts extended mag box beacuse they shoot the 300g SMK.

And for the Savage, you would need to get the RUM length action or modify the regular magnum.
As suggested, used may be a great idea, round count is important.
