It just wouldn't be as handy/accessible and the standard port was short so when loading
the longest cartriges they had to be loaded case head first.

Also back then most of the bases were one piece.

Re: Early 60's action for 338 Edge build?

The only other thing that i think is worth mentioning is:

On the early actions there is no groove on the left locking lug to help the bolt from moving excessively when cycling the bolt. Which isn't a big deal unless you have an extremely strange way of closing the bolt (i.e. lots of upwards pressure on the bolt handle)

My edge is built on a 1968 action without the groove and its fine.
