    Thinking about converting/rechambering a Tikka T3 .223 to a .224 TTH. Only thing that I can see holding it up is the bolt face size.

    The T3 bolt is a plunger style, and I am thinking that you can simply take out the plunger and extractor and open up the bolt face and reinstall them. Is there anything else to it?
