Wyatt Magazine Question

I am having a rifle built on a stiller predator long action. They are cut for the Wyatt Extended Magazine boxes and I am wondering if I have to let McMillan know about this for inletting my stock. Also if a standard Remington long action BDL floor plate will work with them.

    Ask Kevin Wyatt himself:

    I agree with asking Kevin himself. No better source that the maker. It has been my experience that Kevin's mag boxes are approximately .110" longer than OEM mag boxes. I always tell McMillian Fiberglass when I am using Wyatt extened and/or extened and expanded boxes (.284 and short mag boxes). It saves me inlett time. I always ask for Weatherby fill in the action area of the stock and have the screw holes opened up to .500" so I can just slide in and glue my pillars.
