    I only see long action or short action for Vanguard available on the Boyds website.

    You need the long action.

    I have a bunch of Vanguards. Two 257s included. The Boyds' long action is what you need. The magnum is no different. The Prairie Hunter is a lot like a Weatherby stock in profile and feel. I prefer that style to the JRS. The laminates are really nice if a person is so inclined.

    Enjoy.
