Re: Have 30-06 change to .300wm?
You could always Ackley Improve the chamber and get some more oomph! out your .30-06...
Or you could go to .300 WM, but will have to change bolts, bolt heads, or open up the bolt face depending on which kind of rifle you have. Swap out the fooorplate or magazine. And buy new brass, dies, different primers, magnum powders, etc... It will be a much bigger ordeal than simply having the chamber reamed to A.I. And ordering new Ackley Improved dies from Midway.
Just another option to think about.
Going from a standard to a magnum is kind of an expe sive pain in the ass. If you want a .300 WinMag, I would still A.I. Your .30-06, and go buy a complete factory .300 WinMag rifle.
Just my opinion.
