    Yes. Easiest method is to measure distance of space from bottom of scope to top of barrel and then add 1/2 scope diameter and 1/2 barrel diameter.

    On a 700, I open the bolt until the back of the shroud is under the scope than measure from center to center.

    One the M700 the is a vent hole on the side of the action. I measure from there to the center of the windage adjustment on the scope. Works fine on LH actions, but I wonder if the vent hole on M700 RH actions is on the opposite side...?
