Can i use a short action in a long action stock system?

The Long Action stock will not work with a short action. You can swap the short action chassis between calibres that are short action, but not from short to long or vice versa.

That being said. There are some long action rifles barreled and chambered in what are short action calibres. In these cases, our chassis will still work, but you would need to use a long action magazine to feed the short calibre, which usually results in feeding issues.

    The Long Action stock will not work with a .223. The .223 is a short action caliber. You can certainly swap the short action chassis between the .223 and the .308 actions.

    However if you are somehow able to use one of the Long Action magazines for your .223 or .308 ammo, you will be able to use the Long Action chassis.

    Is the Tikka T3 Varmint .308 able to work in a long action Tac 21 Chassis?

    Does the standard 90mm 5 shot magazine fit or do I need something else?
