Why does everything have to be AR-pattern these days? A .300 Win Mag is two action sizes longer than a standard AR, and one bigger than the original
AR-10. Why not do something like the McCann Industries elephant Garand (5 round en-bloc clip of .458 Winchester Mag), or the semi-mythical Losok
Valkyr. A Garand action is already sized for standard-length (.30-06) cartridges, in theory all you'd need to do is modify the gas system and open up
the bolt face to accept a belted case.
Only on a new-production action, of course. I cannot abide the idea of butchering a real M1 just to shoot a bigger round.
