Converting a rem 700 .308 into a 300 win mag?

I was going to build a custome .308 rem 700 starting with the action. I wanted to start in .308 and eventually convert it into a 300 win mag when I shoot the barrel out. (Kinda like the m24). would it be ok if I started with a long action to make it into a .308? ( I see a lot of 7mm rem mags for sale cheap). Plus im lefthanded and every used 700 seems to be in 7mm. Anyway would this be a good path to go on?

so I guess my best bet is to try to get a short action for my 308 and just replace the barrel when its worn out. and then try to make a .300 win mag seperate from that.
