So I have an older Rem 700 BDL in 30-06 and the barrel is worn out and I want to re-barrel with a different caliber. I am trying to find out what calibers I can go to with the action that I have. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I am looking to build a long range rifle..... Thanks
Spell out your uses for the rifle and you'll get a lot more helpful responses. Hunting? Target? What game and range? Factory or reload? Wildcats ok? Your cartridge options are exceedingly long, so best to narrow it down somewhat.
Any long action caliber. Some are drop in fits, others require opening the bolt face, extended magazines, etc. Pick a caliber with the same bolt face and COAL and you have a drop in. Refer to your loading manual or the sticky thread, at the top of the section, regarding cartidge interchangeability.
Tell us what you're thinking of and I can provide specific requirements.
