    Sako a7 magazine

    Hey, just wondering if anyone has an A7 magazine or can get one for a 300wsm.
    Borrowed a mates rifle while mine was in bits and I guess I didn't click the damn thing in well enough. Nobody will ship one out of the states and can't find one in NZ, every other size but not the wsm ones. Unless we can possibly modify a 300 win mag one maybe does anyone know? Thanks in advance

    looking at mine today i reckon tweaking the lips of a short action 308/708 mag will do xactly what you need for it...

    I am looking at chambering a 7SAUM into my 708 A7 and the mag width looks like it it would handle a magnum case. The metal lips are just tweaked further in....

    Nice to know, I figured the difference would be minor. They're bloody expensive here though so just wanted to know for sure

    I haven't attempted to run a mag case into one to check. i would take an empty case into a hunting store to see and check if the plastic moldings are different from the WSM mag visually before I committed..
