I also posted this on the gunsmithing forum. I have 2 CZ BRNO actions that I want to make into a 30-06 and a 338-06. The SAAMI length of both rounds is 3.34" OAL. The problem is the magazine length of the CZ is only 3.28" to 3.30" OAL. Is this simply finding a magazine capable of holding 3.34" shells (06 size) plus a little feed ramp modification or is it more involved? Any ideas? Thanks.

BRNOs

Whitetail: I think that when a large ring Mauser is rebarrelled for a longer cartridge a longer magazine is installed. I'm pretty sure these are almost standard items that you could probably get from Brownells. I would think that if you get the right length magazine you wouldn't have to worry about feed ramp modification.

Sorry for the delay in responding. Hope this helps. Mikey.
