My question is I would like to get a savage 111 long range hunter but it doesn't come in a 30-06. I know the 30-06 is not the first choice for long range hunting, but I live in upstate New York and 500 yrds would be a long ways out. I was just wondering that since the 25-06 is a necked down 30-06 how hard would it be to convert it to a 30-06. If it can, what would I have to do to convert it. Thank You for your time Chris Just in case someone is wondering why a 30-06. I just feel you can't go wrong with a 30-06!
