In order to open the bolt face enough to fit ether the Lapua or
the 378 case you will have to remove .050" from the bolt face
leaving a very thin ring and you would have to install a sako or
I would recomend the RUM (no bolt work) and about the same
power as the lapua if you want to use the Remingtion action.
A weatherby MK 5 or a custom action if your going to the large rim
Dia. cases like the 378,416 and 460 weatherby because of bolt Dia
and the extractors can be changed very easy.
The Remingtion is strong enough but with the extra cost to machine
and change extractors Most Gun Smiths will recomend a lager action
for this class of cartriges.
