Changing aRemington long action to short

HI
I am wanting to change my Remington 700 300 win. mag to a Remington 7mm saum
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
Thanks Ted

    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.
