Rechamber limits of Rem 700 Detachable Mag Action

Hey guys. I have a switch barrel rig 338 Win/7mm Mag on a Rem 700 that I want to rebarrel with one of Dan Lilja's barrels. The only problem is that it uses a detchable magazine, which means no UM cases from what I understand. Can anyone suggest a cartridge/twist choice for me? I'd like to stay with .338 calibre if possible but will consider a .300. I don't think a .340 Weatherby works because of OAL, but width is fine since the .300 Weatherby fits no prob. Any adivce would be appreciated.

TIA, Shel
