    Were the Remington ultra mag rifles built using a special or specific action? Is a standard Remington or Savage Magnum Long Action long enough to be used as a repeater for ultra mag cartridges?

    Yes you can.
    For best results you should put in a longer mag box to take advantage of the ultra mag case length and longer bullets.
    Most folks use a wyatts box or seekins box in a Rem magnum action for the ultra mags.
    Savage actons are also very good but not sure about the mag boxes for them.

    does anyone know what magazine would be used for Ultra Mag Cartridges in a Savage?

    Savage chambered some RUMs for a few years, there might be factory parts available. I don't think they were made for very long though.
