How difficult is it to open up a mag well?

Ive been looking at the Wyatts box (not the DBM). for about 65$ i can extend the OAL of my rounds to 4.00" in my .338 RUM. the question is how difficult is it to open up the bottom of the reciever? A little attention to detail and a dremel and "wala!" or is it a trip to the smith?

If you're really, really good with a Dremel, take it to someone with a mill. The bolt stop needs to be altered as well.

I did one with a dremel. It worked just fine but took a long time.

Next time I'll find someone with a mill.

I did mine with a dremel and it wasn't that hard.
