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.

    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?

    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.

    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.
