Very possible I guess with the headspace addressed, however as jorge pointed out the different case dimension issues would make me think otherwise with regards to proper feeding alignment.

[Linked Image from i.postimg.cc]

Only had a vintage Var-X-11 3x9x40 AO laying around so mounted it up for some load testing.. 300 gr TSX over 61 grs of 4895 produced a 5 shot string avg of 2429 from the 26" bbl...This is pushing it a tad according to the books but miked cases show no

excessive pressure,extraction was easy and case growth was zero..These actions are good to 70,000 so doubt I was even close..More fun to come on targets later with a decent WX window.

That is the coolest custom rifle I have seen in a long time. Supposedly Remington made a few 30 Express in 7X57MM, but Im probably wrong
