    Can anyone point me in the right direction on which Wyatt's extended box I need?

    I have a Remington M700 LSS LH in 300 RUM that I want to install the Wyatt's extended box on.

    After looking at Wyatt's website, I'm left feeling unsure as to which one I need.

    Pretty sure the one I want/need is the MBE-3. Can anyone confirm this?


    Thanks.

    OK. Got it figured out. :)

    MBE-3 is the one that mimics factory style feeding.
    CFE-12 is the one the converts to a center feed and might be a bit more finicky to fit.


    Thanks! :)

    The long box is not hard to do. Here is a Remington 700 I modified for the Wyatt CFE-9 3.990" box on a Lapua build.

    Well, I didn't realize there was one that would allow a 4" COAL.

    My current throat in my factory barrel allows about a 3.8" OAL, so the one i ordered will work.

    If not, I'll do the 4" version later.


    Thanks.

    Edd, I actually did check that out. It's part of what led to my uncertainty as to which specific box I wanted.

    There are at least three Wyatt extended boxes that will work. I picked the one that will suit my needs.

    Just found this thread, also looking for help. I am going to be shooting 215gn Berger hybrids from a300 win mag, what would be the best extended magazine for a rem 700.I don't want a detachable magazine. Thanks

    I went with the MBE-3 which is only the box. It allows about a 3.825" OAL.

    The CFE-12 is the same length but includes a follower for center feed. (Factory Remington feeds from the side).

    The CFE-9 is a box and follower for center feed and allows ~4" OAL .

    So essentially you pick based on what you want or how your chamber/throat is set up.


    The 300WM might be fine in a factory Rem box at 3.6", even with a Berger 210. At most, I'd think the box that allows 3.825" would be more than ample.

    Does the MBE-3 use the factory follower and spring or do you need to buy those to fit the MBE-3 specifically
