Long action Magazines for WSM calibers?
I have considered changing the bolt stop on my left handed Tikka T3 in 270 WSM to utilize a long action magnum magazine. I am sure this has been tried before. Will a WSM round feed from say a 300 Win Mag Magazine without any alteration? I am willing to break out the dremel tool if I have to. I would rather buy a long action magazine than perform open heart surgery on my existing WSM mag. I reload and the stock WSM magazine is just a little longer than SAAMI max coal of 2.860″. I would like more flexibility with a longer magazine since all Tikka T3s are essentially a long action with different bolt stops. I am sure this particular issue has been addressed before and I appologize ahead of time. I would really like to see what a 270 caliber Berger VLD in 150 grains could do if I seated it to the lands or close to it. 😉
