Short action, short bolt throw, i.e. .308
Long action, long bolt throw, i.e. .300 wm.
basic differences.

When looking at the rifles, the length of the action is dependent upon what caliber you order. If you buy a .308, it'll come with a short action, if you buy a .300 WM, it'll come with a long action. You really don't have a choice in the matter, unless you are building a custom rifle... then you could put a short caliber into a long action if you wished.
