I've got a older Ruger MKII varmint/target rifle in 25-06. I'm expecting the barrel to being closed to shot out. Will the action be long enough to convert to a 264 win mag round? Thanks for any info.
And if it's CRF the extractor will need work, too. I don't know if the Ruger uses a dedicated magnum follower for it magnum chambered rifles, or not.It's a CRF bolt face if I recall correctly which means it should be able to have the face opened up pretty easily.
Your bolt can easily be opened up to a magnum. Follower works. Easy conversion. If you handload I would consider the 6.5x280 ackley improved if you want a 6.5. Right on the heels of the 264.If I found a left handed-magnum bolt could it be taken apart to build a correct bolt for my possible bui9ld?
