7STW re-bbl

I have a 7STW with a 23" bbl. Factory Rem bbl with the brake removed and recrowned. I want to rebbl to a different cal. without a belted case if posible.
I know it has the Mag bolt face: so what are my options?
I have 7WSM, 7RM, and 280AI so I don't want a 7mm.
Will a 300 WSM work in a long action rifle?
Use will be for deer and hogs across large fields, ranges to 600yds+.

Another option is to buy an additional bolt from PTG with a .473 bolt face then you can do 25-06, 270, 30-06 and all of the 30-06 based wildcats.

Re: 7STW re-bbl

Now that is what I needed to know.
Do I need just the bolt frame or a complete bolt?
This rifle has no j-lock.
I bought the rifle new when the 7STW first came out, it was extremely loud, so I sent it to Hill Country Rifles and had the brake removed. While there they added a Mcmillan stock and bedded the rifle.
I want to keep the stock and just rebbl to a different cal.
The smaller bolt face gives a lot more choices.

THANKS
Coach

Re: 7STW re-bbl

Something to consider is the distance between the rec. rails; standard (30-06, etc.) may or may not feed well with the slightly wider rail spacing used by the STW case.

Try feeding some empty cases from the magazine to determine if you have a problem.....
