Is it possible to use a Sako L61 Long action to make a 8mm Rem. Mag., and how hard ane expensive will it be? Thanks.

I think that would work, I believe I've seen L61's chambered for 375 H&H before, so if the H&H will fit the 8mm rem should too. May need to mod the magazine box. So a barrel change, bolt face enlargement and magazine mods should do it.

Here is one on gunbroker http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/Vie...Item=309931718
