    What other calibers would fit/work with the boltface size of a Rem700 SA 243Win if I were to rebarrel it?

    Look in the gunsmith section and at the top is a sticky with all of this information (Bolt Face diameters).

    It should answer all of your questions.

    .243 Win uses the "Standard" bolt face. Which means you can use anything that has a 0.473" diameter rim.
