    Being as they built this rifle for long range, and chambered it in 300 win mag, you would HOPE that they would take this into consideration and make it capable of loading the 215 Bergers and similar bullets out to the lands. I would like to know as well.

    Well I can tell you your hope is no good with the number crunchers. Take a look at Noslers rifles and their short magazines. They even designed two of the best cartridges this century will see to meet the 3.4 SAAMI spec instead of seating the big bullets out where they should be. Sorry for the side bar. I would bet money that any X-bolt magazine will be the same. Someone on here has to have one.

    I have one in 6.5 Creed, so can't help with the long action, but mine has plenty of space to load Berger's and A-max out to the lands. I bet a gun store would let you measure if you took your calipers and asked nicely

    Thanks for the ideas. I will probably call browning tomorrow. I'm wondering if the ABM 215 hybrid ammo will run in it. COAL 3.600

    What is plenty of space? My guess is it is 2.850 which is SAAMI short action.
