I am wanting to build a long range .243 on a savage/stevens action. My question is will a short action be long enough to use the internal magazine if i use the long 115 DTAC bullets? Thanks guys

Probably not, but stranger things have happened. Depends on the throat of the rifle. I have a model 7 Rem and with the 95grn SST's they just fit in the magazine. It is a bit shorter than a normal short action though. There may be an after market magazine you could install that would help in your predicament. One of the rifle builders should know.
