25.06 action

I have a Remington 700 action that was on a 25.06. What I am wondering what other calibers I can use this action for ?

Re: 25.06 action

any long action (or even short action) round. any of the 06 family including the 270. if you have a smith that can open up the bolt face, then you can use any of the 284 family as well as non-belted mags. no short mags, no 223 size/family. you could make it a 243/260/308 family stuff but that is more short action, you wouldn't need a long action, but you COULD use it for that.

Little work and the magnums will work also.

Re: 25.06 action

Why would you need to open the 25-06 boltface for the 284 cartridge?

Re: 25.06 action

I was kind of wondering about the .284 size mentioned also cause on my Savage Striker pistol I can swap barrels from a 22-250 to .284 Win without changing my bolt head . Or from .243 , .260 ,7-08 ,308 ,.270 or 30-06 to .284 with just a head space gauge and some tools !

Re: 25.06 action

yep, that was pretty comprehensive. on the 284. I was thinking they were different, but didn't look. maybe its that the brass gets bigger after the face...
