Remington 700 - 338 LM magazine Length

Here is my dilema. I need 3.778" to get my 300 SMK seated to the lands but due to the detachable magazine length i can only get 3.680". What are my options to get the additional .090" required to get the bullet seated out closer to the lands? I know seekins Precision makes a DM kit that will give me 3.9" or so. What about swapping to a BDL style bottom metal, will this give me any more magazine length?

Thanks in advance for the assistance.

    Thanks 300R. That is definately an option. I had not seen that bottom metal before.

    Wyatts has a CFE-9 center feed extended mag box that has an internal oal of 4.0 I've used them before and and they work quite well. Takes a little tweaking of the feed lips but when it's fitted just right it works flawlessly. You'll only have 2 +1 though.
