gotcha. thank you! i might look into a tikka just because i found one new local to me. i think they have the larger mag boxes because they dont make short actionsBig Jake
No it will not work in a standard Rem or clone short action they are usually about 2.860 Max. There are Baines and Wyatts Mag boxes that will extend that a bit. Some Winchester and clones will have a 3.125 box and they will work great. Also you will need a 1/8 twist for the 170s.
