Rem700 LA caliber options?

What are the limits on a rem700 long action if you want it to be a repeater and safely handle the pressures?
Thanks,
Ken

I guess I'm a little confused on the question, most LA cartridges have max pressures of 60,000-63,000 PSI? If you follow max load info in reloading manuals, they will put you around 59,000-62,000 PSI. Always start low and work up and pay attention to pressure signs.

Well, I just want to know what are the largest case diameters and longest case lengths usable in a rem700 long action.
Thanks,
Ken

Check out this "sticky" in the gunsmithing section
