I recently purchased a Remington 783 bolt action in a .223 caliber.
Will this magazine fit my rifle and the required .223 caliber round?

What is the difference in long acti0n and short action magazine
Asked by: Wesley K Tackett
Hello Wesley K Tackett,
Regarding long-action and short-action firearms:
Two things are being referenced in both terms: the length of the rifle’s receiver and the length dimension of the bolt. There are, actually three action lengths—short, long and magnum—but the magnum-length actions are reserved for the longest cases like the .375 Holland & Holland Magnum, .416 Rigby and .300 Remington Ultra Magnum. Most common centerfire cartridges come in short or long actions.
The .30-06 Springfield set the stage for the long-action rifle. This round has a cartridge overall length (or COL, as you’ll see it referred to often) of 3.340 inches. Most of today’s long-action cartridges will fit into a magazine and action of this length. In fact, many long-popular hunting cartridges had their cases designed around this 3.340-inch measurement, such as the .270 Winchester, .280 Remington, .35 Whelen, .264 Winchester and 7mm Remington, as well as much newer cartridges like the .26 and .28 Nosler.
Shorter cartridges have been with us since the early part of the 20th century, and the trend to shorten both cartridge length and receiver length by a half-inch or so over the 3.340-inch length of the long-action cartridges resulted in a lighter, more rigid rifle. The .300 Savage and the .250-3000 Savage were among the forerunners in the short-action category, but it was the .308 Winchester round, introduced in the early 1950s, that started what was then short cartridge craze. The .308 Winchester quickly bred an entire family of cartridges, including the .243 Winchester, .358 Winchester, and later on the .260 Remington, 7mm-08 Remington and .338 Federal.
