    I am considering having a 338 edge built out of a mark V action.
    The magazine is 3.750 and was wondering if they make a longer one?
    Would also like to know if Mc Millan stock is the way to go. They seem on the high price side but want a good rifle.

    Bottom metal from: Weatherby DBM Mark V

    I have dummy rounds at 3.75 and they fit.

    I'd like longer but don't know how bullets will seat yet.

    I have the reamer.

    That should leave roughly .900 of bullet left sticking out if you want them to feed through the magazine.
    Single shot with the cutaway on the Mark V action you could load them alot longer
