I'm reaching out to anyone who has purchased and loaded for the 300 RUM in the Max LR X bolt. It's twisted at 8, so I could shoot 230s out of it, but what I can't get out of the Browning folks is "what magazine does this caliber use" Trying to determine what COAL would fit inside the mag to see if I can run 230 Bergers out to the lands and still mag feed it.

Any users out there?

Um....well my local store has had the 6.5 version sitting on the shelf for two weeks & they said the other calibers were available.

300 RUM not out yet?

And I know the x bolt mag is unique, but there is 5 different styles, and the long action magnum and 375 specific mags won't come close to the 4.0 inches that will be required for those long ass 230s.

Are they making something proprietary for this gun?

Really doubt you are going to be able to mag load the 230’s. Cannot say for sure that they use the same mag ( I bet they do ), but the 300 win mag only has ~ 3.5” oal of usable space in the regular x-bolt lr.

408w....I fear the same. A crying shame if don't make a specific mag for that chambering.

Would the 28 nosler mag be longer?
