    .. On my Winchester WSM the feed rails are not big enough to feed the WSM cartridges thru.. But it's set up as a single shot so it doesn't really matter.. If I try to lay a cartridge in too far back in the port the rails tend to "grab" the brass.. I think the amount the rails need to be opened is pretty small and would not amount to much of a difference in the action strength..
    .. On the negative side, and this is based on theory, I think if you do this modification the action probably will not work with "standard" mag cases anymore.. d:^) JiNC
