Sako L61R Action Length

Did the L61R have a difference in the length of receiver between the "long" cartridges (.30-06, .270 etc.) and the magnum cartridges (.300WM, .375 H&H etc)?

In the old Sako manual it only lists one part number for the receiver which suggests all the calibres (including magnum) used the same receiver.

I might be doing a build using a L61R action as a donor.

They might be the same receiver, but boltfaces are different, which I imagine will have a major bearing on any rebarrel/build. I've got a magnum action I'm trying to decide what to do with.

Oddly enough the Sako manual doesn’t distinguish between bolts either, even though the bolt faces will obviously be different.
