    So if I own a SS T3 chambered in 300wsm straight factory original, and I wanted say a 6.5 x 47 lapua what do I do about the bolt face?? I understand there are other issues with this caliber change but I believe the bolt to be the biggest.
    Ideas?
    Suggestions?
    Thx

    someone out there would possibly put a bushing on it or something but that is not the way to go. you need a different bolt or action.. good luck finding a bolt you should just sell that rifle and buy something with the correct bolt face

    That's kind of what I was feeling would be the reply.
    Thx!
