    Anyone do a .308 on an axis long action

    Have a long action savage axis that I would like to do a barrel swap on to .308. Already has a .473 bolt face. Any issues with feeding and the mag length.

    If you are using a factory Axis stock all you have to do is change trigger guard and use 308 magazine.

    I thought all Axis actions were same length. Only the magazine and trigger guard change.

    need to use multiple posts, or were you deliberately trying to pad your post count to reach 20 to use the PM system? (since you specifically asked about it earlier)

    You shouldn't have any problem feeding the .308 from the -06 magazine. Only thing that could/would post an issue is if you were loading very short bullets (115-125gr) in which case the rear of the case could pass free of the feed lips before the bullet tip was started into the chamber. With the longer VLD style bullets that won't be an issue.
