    I just finished a build on a savage long action.. its a 30-338 lapua ackley.

    Heres my question.. once the cases are fire formed (with hardly any taper) they will no longer feed down into the magazine. I can put one round in the mag.. but its to narrow to push it down past that... Anyone make a wider mag for this action..

    the rifle began as LRH savage 111 338 lapua. this does accept Accuracy inter. mags...

    any answers?

    Thanks!!!!

    Cheapest bet might be to have a smith machine it out a bit.....Rich

    You might be able to get away with just bending the front of the mag lips open a little. Take care when doing so. Bend a little, check fit.
