I currently have a 270 Sendero. I was thinking of re-chambering it to a 300 WM.
Is this possible?
Would I/can I need to buy a new bolt?
Can the existing barrel be re-cut or would I need a new one?
Would I be better off just buying a new rifle?
This older Sendero shoots really well, but it is a little heavy for what you get out of a 270 and I get the same out of an old BDL.
I have made the bolt face, extractor, and magazine mod for Mausers.
It is a lot of trouble when you can just trade rifles.
I got a 7mmRemMag Rem 700 three months ago for $395 with scope at a pawn shop.
I got a 7mmRemMag Rem 700 nine months ago for $300 at a gun show. That is a 1963 with SS Hart barrel painted black at the factory.
Those convert to 300 Win Mag with just a barrel swap.
