    Once I shoot the barrel out of my 300 win mag can I upgrade to the 338 Edge or a 300 RUM by putting on a new barrel?

    Will my existing bold and mag box work?

    Thanks

    You can use the bolt and action, you will need a different box mag for the Ultra based cases, you will also need some feed rail & ramp work.

    You may be able to have a repeater with stock mag if your o.a.l. isn't too long I personally know of 3 or 4 that function that way, the one I have is single shot but it is a markX action...What Shawn said about the rails is correct but don't get in a hurry!
