Re: Possible Rem 700 chamber into something bigger
I know that Rem offers the 700 in 338 Lapua. I will not build one on a 700 action. When the boltface is opened up, to accept the Lapua Mag head, the surrounding metal is, in my opinion, too thin to provide a safety margin. All of the custom actions, that I have built rifles on, have larger diameter bolts than the magnum Rem 700.
