Rem 700 ADL Long Action Build Options...
What are the options of getting said rifle to feed larger shells? I would really like to do something with my old clapped out 30-06 and would like your thoughts on which way to go. The bolt face will be opened up, and I will change stocks to accommodate, but how would I get the action to feed rounds like the 338RUM? If it's a money pit, I'm wasting brain cells on it, but if it can be done cheaply I'd like to hear your thoughts.
I'm not a 30 cal "fan" so either 7mm or 338 are my options while I'd really like a 338 RUM. 7 Rem Mag may be the biggest I'd go in 7mm due to barrel life (not dedicated hunting rifle- I like to shoot), unless y'all know something better to change to in the 7mm caliber. What can I do with my 30-06 that is worthwile?
A penny for your two on the subject, and thanks for your time.
