I just had a rem 700 with 223 bolt face opened up to a 308 and a sako style extractor put in to replace the rem one. my question is can i do the same to take a 308 bolt face and open it up to a mag. face or will there be to much of the old extractor grove left to work?

Opening up to .545 for a Mag boltface will not clean up the counterbore. That requires opening to .625 and installing a
sleeve or ring to get you down to .545. It can be epoxied in or soft soldered(which I am sceptical of) before making the cut for the Sako extractor.

What about taking the whole nose off and make it like a Savage bolt face? Shorten the firing pin and there ya go.

You will be able to buy a new magnum bolt for less than the cost of paying someone to convert a Remington bolt to accept a Savage bolt head.

but it would be part savage so it would be that much better.

I`ve never liked those noses,the extracter, and its more work when doin a chamber.I dont know if there is enough material between the lugs for a new bolt face,need to look.But then use a savage or sako style extracter. just thinkin

Why not just buy a bolt from Dave Kiff?
