    Rem 700 Long Action for 308

    Can I use my old 300WM long action for a 308 rebuild?

    yes the military does it but you'll need a bolt with a .480 face if you want it to extract the rounds

    You may want to check to see if a magazine full of .308's will feed correctly before obtaining a bolt with the correct bolt face.

    If it works I don't think there is any great disadvantage to using a long action over a short action.
