    never easy on any gun if your talking about keeping it the same cal and round

    sorry to ask but you want to define that some more ( i'm getting a bit thick ;) )

    Thinking about a .30 with a larger case. The .303 brits are swelling in the chamber anf sticking

    some folks have rechambered .303's , i've not done it myself , you over size the chamber and fit a new piece thats to size , done a few .30-06 refits though thats not hard at all a good smith can do that for you

    I could always use another .30-06

    ok without stuffing you about the LE uses a rimmed case, most other rounds dont so extraction will be a issue for most options,

    common conversions are .308 30-06 .350 rigby and some others , then theres the rebarrel options

    .240 .270 win 303-25
