The action would have to be opened up ,you would be money ahead to start with a 375 H&H action as it is already opened up.... It would also need a longer magazine... All of this can be done,it just cost money.... To go to any 30-06 length mag cartridge will only require the bolt face to be opened to accomedate the larger rim of the bigger, not longer round
range it,check the wind, dial in correction, aim and only one shot
