OK, I orig. posted about a build project a long time ago. Here are the updated details - Rem M700 short action in .243, blued. Was going to make a nice .308 out of it. untill yesterday. Talked to friend last night and he said that a smith could make that .243 bolt face (0.473) to fit a 300 WSM (needs .534) said all the smith had to do is use a sako or M-16 type extractor (?). Before I call my smith I have a couple of other questions.

Is the internal magazine long enough for the 300WSM?

Whats ya'lls overall feelings on this type of conversion?

I will be buying new floor metal and using an existing H.S. stock. Barrel will come from Montana (MEL, who do you deal with out there, going to let them know I got their name from you) Looking at a #6 or #7 contour. THis rifle will be for hunting and target shooting, what contour would be best? What about barrel length on the 300 WSM 22", 24", 26"? Twist??

This rifle will be shooting as light of a round as it can for whitetail and needs to be able to handle a heavy round for elk or sheep. What will a 125 noslier B.Tip do in the 300WSM?

Thanks guys! (i know, i know, lots of questions!!)
