Re: Bolt face diameter's 300WSM

I have a lawton single shot 300WSM, I think it's the 7000series action. Could this be converted to a 300 norma or a 338 norma? I have to look at it but I think it's the short action.

If it is the same length as the short action Remington, yes.

The bolt face will work but you may not be able to eject a loaded round without removing the bolt.(I had a 30/338 on a short action 40X and it could eject the empty's but not the loaded rounds.

The 30/338 Win is the same basic size as the Norma's .

Re: Bolt face diameter's

Yes, great thread.

I have a Rem SFSS II in 223 Rem that I would like to convert to 220 Swift. Anyone done this or know exactly what it is going to take to do it?

Open up bolt face?

New bolt?

Would magazine length be an issue?

Can it ever be done with this action?

I am thinking a new Krieger or Shilen barrel with a 1:8 twist for shooting 75 grain bullets. Who has done this and what were your results?

Thanks,
Wooly
