    Default Vanguard action length

    Can anyone tell me if the action and magazine length is the same for a Vanguard in .300 Win Mag and .300 Wby?

    I think the 300 win is a standard length but 300 wby is longer because its a longer action.

    I put a whole dollar on them being the same action. Mag box may or may not be the same.

    With the 300 win mag being 67 mm and the 300 weatherby being 71 mm would they be able to fit in the same action? I know that the 300 weatherby is a longer action like the 375 h/h.

    We are talking about action length right?

    Can someone provide a magazine length for both? I can't see Weatherby making three action lengths for the Vanguard.

    It is the same action and the box might be different. I think the short 308 ones may be shorter but have never looked at one. If the mag box was the same then you could seat the 300win out a ways and load em up a bit hotter.
