Re: gun rebarrel

All you need is a long action, rifle brand shouldn't matter. Not 100% sure what your question is.

Re: gun rebarrel

you would need a long action gun with a .473 bolt face. Like a 30-06 or 270 as a donor action.

Re: gun rebarrel

What I mean is I want a 30-06 long range gun but I don't have $3000 for a custom. I see a lot of 308's and 300 mag LR guns can I recamber them to 30-06 I have a rem 7400 and a single shot both in 30-06 and Iam set up for the 30-06 so I want to keep it simple. I hope this clears things up thank you Chris

you can, just have to single feed it and pull the bolt to extract a live one

I would buy a savage in 30-06 and see how it shoots. More than likely you will like the accuracy for the price. If and when you want more accuracy you can buy a new custom barrel that will thread right on your action.
