Is there any advantages or disadvantages from changing a long action to a short action. This will be a hunting gun only so do I need the extra mag. lengh and will I need any thing to change it to that
There is only one advantage , Bullet seating depth is unlimited (COL). you can shoot any
bullet at any seating depth and still use the magazine.
As far as changing any thing, I allways recomend going to a center feed mag box to aid
feeding of the short fat cases. plus it is easy to tune the mag box and tuning the reciever
rails is more diffacult.
If you already have the rifle and just want to change the caliber, GO for it.
