Just curious why everyone is so paranoid about building the .338 Norma magnum on a 700 long action. They already make after market bolts with the Lapua bolt face for it. The designer of the Norma designed this cartridge for a 700 platform and to fit in a normal size mag box. I really dont see the issue open up a bolt face laterally to .585 the lugs are still lugs your not loosing any metal on the lugs at all due to the nose on the Remington bolt. I keep reading about pressures of the case being brought up a lot but Remington chambers the 700 long action to fire the .300 Ultra mag as it is with an operation pressure of 65,000 PSI and the max pressure of the 338 Norma is around 62,000 PSI so it is under what a standard caliber already chambered and fit for that action. So I don't know why its recommended against building on this type of action. I am planning on starting mine come January and was wondering just what I am missing or are people that afraid to try something.
