    What is the max useable length for a 700 Short action internal box magazine?

    Not sure what caliber you have, but I would take an empty case trimmed to the correct size and play round with different LONG projectile seating depths until you found what functioned the best in your magazine and feed ramp. Then measure the overall length. Also, the internal magazine is sized differently if you have say a .223 as compared to a .308 if I remember correctly.

    To get the measurement take the action out of the stock an measure the box. That should be the max.

    I would think you could do that with inside calipers. I would stay little under that though.
