Just wondering If bolt face on rem 700 can be opened up from standard to magnum? Any problems with doing so? Looking to build a 300 win mag. and have found a LA 700, but with standard bolt face,

Thanks,

Alan

Yes they can be opened up, but I just happen have a magnum bolt and would rather have a standard. PM me if you'd be interested in a trade.
