Hello everyone,

I found a used Remington 7mm-08 bolt action rifle at a local gun store. I was wondering if it can be converted to .308? What other calibers would work with this gun? It has a synthetic stock and is in pretty worn condition, and I think I can get it for about 150.00 to 175.00.

Thanks

why would you rule out 7mm08? its a great cartridge, less recoil than the 308. If you want to change a low cost barrel like a douglas would still run around 100 bucks plus install and bluing or refinishing. looking around 150-200 for that. 243, 260 and 338 federal are a option too.

The action will support any short action cartridge in the .473 bolt head family but why? the 7-08 rem is ballistically wonderful and just as powerful as the .308.
