can a savage 110 (30-06) be rebarreled to the ultra-mags?
If I am not mistaking, you need to change the bolt head also. Contact Sharp Shooter Supply or get on www.savageshooter.com and ask around there.
You can make it 300 ultra very easily. just buy a bolt head and switch it. Thats all there is to it if your not worried about a magazine and feeding.
Midway USA is also a great place for lots of Savage parts. Depending on the year of manufacture of your gun, when you get a bolt head to accept the Ultra, you may also need a new firing pin and cross pin.
When they started cranking out the big calibers, Savage switched to firing pin with a smaller diameter shank to use a smaller hole in the cross pin for additional strength. When I swapped a Striker from 7mm-08 to a .270x243WSSM, I needed the larger face bolt head, smaller shank firing pin (think it is .095") and the cross pin with smaller hole.
All easy parts to get and easy to swap. But I did have to reset the firing pin depth. The magnum bolt head is thicker front to back than the standard bolt heads and the stop on the pin would not let it move far enough to contact the primer. This may not be a problem if you buy a firing pin (w/ spring) for the Ultra...I was rigging a set up since parts are hard to get for the Striker handguns.
Yes a savage 110 can be rebarreled to a rum, your problem is going to be getting a small shank barrel in this caliber, additionally rum's need to be controlled round feed rather than push feed to cycle reliably if you desire a repeater. I have read that some barrel makers will not make small shank rum barrels even though savage did for a short period of time. Your best bet would be to find a Savage Rum action to build off of.
