The 700 Remington is easy to open up to a magnum bolt face or buy a bolt with a magnum
bolt face and M 16 extractor from PT&G and you are ready to barrel. (You can save or sell the standard bolt face bolt and recover some of your money).
I prefer not to go any larger than magnum bole face with the 700 Action, But there are many cartridges that fit the mag bolt face and are plenty powerful enough for extreme range.
I like the custom actions or the Weatherby Mark 5s for case head diameters larger than the
magnum bolt face.
