Stupid question? Just thinking out loud here? I have 2 Rem 700?s in .30-06 and no 300 Winnie mag. Does anyone know if that action will work if I swap barrels to the 300 win. Mag.?Thanks,

I don't have a bolt for a 300 Win Mag (may need to borrow Steve's?) to try it? I thought that the .30-06 Bolt might work? Guess not?thanks,

Two good books: "the complete illustrated guide to precision rifle barrel fitting" by John L.Hinnant.You can order that by logging onto www.brownells.com, about 35 bucks.All the black magic, and rocket sciencewill be revealed, throw in another $5 and get the Brownells gunsmithing parts catalog. Thats going to costyou more money that you can imagine, there is more good stuff in that catalog, than the S.I. Swimsuit issue.
