Default Internal magazine Remington action lengths

Looking for internal magazine action lengths. Loading 195TMK's in a 30-06 my gauge tells me 3.523 so going to start at 3.500. Only enfo I have found says magazine length for a 700 la is 3.66. Is this correct?

3.523 is where the bullet enters the rifling.

You should be fine. I use the Berger method for determining the seating depth with great luck.

In my former job/hobby of accuracy workups, I found that bolt face to rifling lengths were nearly always longer than magazines, thus making single shots or two-shooters out of my bolt guns. For pigs at night at lighted feeders--not a problem though.

What about a Wyatt's Box? The CFE-9 would allow an OAL of 4.00 inches. http://wyattsoutdoor.com/product_inf...products_id/39

They have other boxes that would give you OAL length of 3.825"

Do you have to mill your rifle and stock for these to fit?

According to the description your bolt stop has to be modified and other milling will need to be done.

I will take a single shot that fires single hole groups. I am not modifying a rifle that is that accurate.
