savage rebarrel

I'm playing with the idea of rebarreling a savage model 11 that I have to something else. I have another 223 and don't see the need to have 2. Does anyone have a link to a list of cartridges that I can rebarrel to using the same bolt head? I'm also curious about magazines, let's say I did end uprebarreling to something that uses a different head like 22-250. Obviously I'll need to change the mag but will I need to make any alterations to the magwell or anything.

Re: savage rebarrel

Thanks, so if I wanted to go to a bigger cartridge in a short action, I'd just swap the bolt head and magazine? Will all short action magazines fit the stock/receiver or is there more work to do?

Re: savage rebarrel

All short action magazines should fit the short receiver. Just make sure you get one for model 11. Should not need to change the feed ramp or anything.

I changed my 223 to a 260 rem. Same reason, didn't see a reason to have two 223s.

Hmm, that's kinda neat. I might need to think a bit more seriously about this.

Re: savage rebarrel

Contact savage directly and sign a liability waver saying that you do not hold them reliable and you can get a new bolt head for 20.00. Or you can go to midway and replace the bolt with a factory bolt for 109.00.
