    I have a very nice FN-Belgium action and need advice.-
    I want to build a 7mmWSM, would it be safe to build it on this action?
    the boltface can be opened, and the rails opened also, Do I need any changes on the magazine?
    Any help will be appreciated.
    Thank you.

    That action is fully capible of handeling that round as it works with the regular magnum rounds , being an FN series action I'm pretty sure that its strength would not need to be questioned.

    I have a P.O. Ackly built , 7x57 Ackley improved locked up in a safe place and have to say that the action is very nice when finished properly

    In short , find a smith thats framiliar with these actions and talk the build over with him.
