Re: Very green noobie... Rem700 SPS/ADL Varmint Conversion .223 to ???
hey the only thing I see that will give you a problem is the bolt face.you will have to open it up or buy one to fit the case size you mentioned.for me I would rebarrel it back too a 223 but with a varmet class barrel with a 1:9/1:8 twist.then you could still hunt out to 250 yards with a 70-80 grain bullet.I hunt with a 1:12 twist 223 out to 100 yards all the time.just don't like to go past that with a 55 grain bullet.but I may start useing my new 223 with a 1:9 twist some.just need to do some more load testing with it.and yea the mag follower will have to changed.and a 30/06 want work to long.will cause a problem when it comes to mag feeding.
