Re: Bolt face diameter's

I have a Rem 700 long action chambered at the factory for 8x57. From what I can gather my bolt face is 0.47" My internal magazine has plenty of length left over with the 8x57.

I thought I would be all set with doing a barrel swap to 6.5x284 Norma, but now I see that cartridge has a rebated rim which is 0.473, but the base is actually 0.5". Will my bolt work, or will it need to be modified/replaced ?

Re: Bolt face diameter's

Looks like there are 4 primary bolt face dimensions. These look to be the inner dimensions where the bullet casing recesses - correct? How many primary bolt (outer diameter) sizes are there? 4 also? What would the outer dimensions be? Thanks in advance for you response.

Re: Bolt face diameter's

The bolt diameters are the same for all 700's. There are 2 lengths....short action and long. There are 4 main bolt face diameters (I'm pretty sure they made a .440" bolt face for .220 Russian/PPC at one point) They are .221/.222/.223 at .378, .243/7-08/.308 at .473, 7rm/300wm/300rum at .532, and 338 Lapua at .578. They only make the larger 3 in long action and the 3 smaller ones in short action.
