Standard bolt face opened to msgnum?

Hello
My question is: Can a remington 700 long action with standard bolt face
be opened up to magnum bolt face (7mm rem mag) without to much trouble.
Cost is very important, any estimates?
Action has been trued.
Thanks

Yes . But a new extractor has to be installed.

By the time and expense of doing all that, just order a new bolt like you want it from Pacific Tool and Gauge and then sell the old bolt.

Much cheaper and better bolt!

+1

Depending on the org. action, the feed rails may need to be opened up a little to feed the mag case.
