Re: Remington 700 7mm Rem mag conversion
If you have no use for it, I'll give you $150 for it shipped to my local FFL...
Non-magnum calibers require a standard bolt face, not a magnum bolt face. So you will have to change the bolt or bolt body out to one that has a standard face on it.
Also, you will be better off in the long-run rebarreling instead of cutting that chamber back and reaming it out. I would go with a 1:9 twist regardless of what 7mm caliber you choose.
What caliber do you have plans for?
Also while the smith has the barrel off, you will want them to true and square the action and bolt face. If you plan on reusing the factory stock have them float the barrel and bed the action and recoil lug while they have everything off.
