I am making plans on having a R/H Charles Daly Long Action with a standard bolt face modified to accommodate magnum cartridges in the 3.400” length category. Looking for recommendations to make sure the action functions properly, flawlessly and the rounds chamber smoothly.
Here is what I have planned so far:
Square action and lap lugs.
Bolt face opened up from .473” to .534”.
Factory bolt shroud replaced with a 3-position safety shroud.
Factory trigger replaced with a Timney trigger, adjusted to 3 lb pull.
While I was reading up on the steps necessary to have this action converted into a magnum I read a little about feed rail/lip modifications for double stack magazines; This is new to me and it brought up a whole new set of concerns with my project. Since I am not familiar feed rail or lip modifications, I need some advice on how to proceed. I want to make sure my cartridges will feed smoothly and flawlessly from the magazine to the chamber. What does this modification involve ? Thanks
