    Wanting to know

    Just wanting to know without sounding like a dumb c@#t.

    Can a standard long action be used for a magnum?

    I realise that ie: a 270 would need to have the bolt face made bigger to fit lets say a 7mm mag, but is it strong enough etc?

    Cheers

    Pretty sure all the actions are made as one.. the only difference when piecing together at factory is when they match the bolt its the size of the mmhhhmmm if ya know what I mean..
