    I have 2 Browning A-Bolts 300wsm's and I'm wanting to rebarrel one of them to either a 7wsm or 7saum And I don't have enough info on either of them.

    Welcome to LRH

    I built a 7 saum on a Browning A Bolt and it was quite the effort.
    The mag needed to be extended to accommodate the 168 VLD and
    162 SST loaded out to the start of the rifling. It cost me $100 per mag to have them extended .020...I ordered 2 of them.

    Just a note on this topic, the Browning and Remmy Short actions and mags are both shorter than a M70 SA.

    Let me know if I can be of any help.
