    Where is the bolt stop on the tikka t3's is it on the bolt or is it on the action?

    I have just ordered a 300wsm and i have not had a chance to have a look at it closely yet but i am curious to know where it is as i am replaceing the factory bottom plastic and magazine assembly with a new DB mag and bottom metal so that i can seat projectiles out further, but this will be pointless if i cant get the bolt back further.:)

    The bolt stop is on the bolt release lever on the left side of the action. they have two positions. the short calibers are limited in travel by the first stop and the long cartridges are limited by the second. you will need to grind off the short stop so the bolt can open further.
