Rem 700 action question

Can a Rem 700 action from my 30/06 bolt face be opened up to handle .338 lupa? I am wanting to build one and have a worn out 30/06 barrel and action is still great shape.

Re: Rem 700 action question

thanks will check it out. Rem is one strong action as far as I am concerned , better than most with open boltface of a mauser type.
