Re: Gun Conversion
You can re-bore the barrel to any diameter that you want--that will use the same bolt, they just make the hole bigger...basically stick a larger drill down the barrel and widen it to the new caliberů
The other alternative is to have another barrel made for the gun, chambered in what ever caliber works for you and your action, this is called a switch-barrel gun...maybe get it in .264 Win, or .280 Rem etc. and use it as a antelope/sheep/deer gun...
both would end up about the same cost but the later gives you two (2) guns as opposed to one...
You could also sell your first barrel if you wanted...
There is a certain type of mentality that thinks
if you make certain inanimate objects illegal
their criminal misuse will disappear!
