Rem. TI Mountain Rifle rechamber

Ok opinions welcome
Lets say you had a Remington 700TI mountain rifle with excelent trigger(after some work) and a magna port muzzle break. Currently chambered in 30-06. So it is a long action but not a magnum bolt face. Any suggestions on a rechamber without a barrel swap? I am not opposed to opening up the bolt face.

I've always wanted a 7WSM on a Ti LA. 6.5-06 would work without any bolt work. If you did go to .540 bolt face, you could run almost any magnum chambering you wanted, along with a barrel swap. I don't know of any other .30 cal .470 bolt face LA cartridges.

The action you have is a great platform for a custom!! Think about it before spending money on a 45 dollar factory tube.

Re: Rem. TI Mountain Rifle rechamber

I was in the same situation this time last year. I went the 280AI route, it has shot smk, ttsx, and bt half moa with no load work. With some 168 bvld's it will reach out as far I would want to in a light rifle.
