I had a look in the magazine box and i dont think you can get a bigger 1 in there it is 95mm long and goes all the way to the front of the action.

The bolt also you are right about it is able to move the full length back behind the mag so no need to mill out the bolt stop.

It seems if i want to turn this gun into the Edge the hardest thing will be the wait for my 28" lilja or Hart barrel. Havent decided yet.

Thanks for all the help guys

Dirty Barrel

Looks like its ready to go. Sorry for the mis information on the bolt stop. I was changing a 7 rem mag.

I know this goes against everything we talk about but, My weatherby shot .75 moa all day. Then I started really getting into target shooting and learned how to clean a barrel. I thought, why not scrub the Weatherby. After this it went to 1.5 to 2 moa. I would not tighten up. I finnaly stopped cleaning it and around 15 to 20 rounds it went right back to .75moa.

Then only thing the barrel saw after that was a wet patch of Hoppes every 15 to 20 rounds.

Just my results, yours might varry.

Its interesting you say that cause i do clean my rifles well and i also find the most consistant results out of my barrel after 10 rnds. Also i came to the conclusion that my 300 likes the bullets to jump a long way as i can get a consitant 1' five shot group out of my shortest test loads . Anyway i will load some more this round even shorter again and test if it aint under the inch its 338 time . I will post photos of the build.
