A friend in Denver was giving an early version of a Win Model 70 chambered in .264WM this afternoon. The barrel is well worn and the stock is weathered. The rifle is
He would like to replace or refinish the stock and re-barrel it. He is looking into a 6.5X47 because of the results of another shooting buddies rifle in the cartridge.
Since the 264WM is derived from the 375H&H parent case and has a rim diameter of .532 would this prevent it from accepting a case with a rim diameter of .472 ???
I don't have any experience with action mods or the steps required to convert one to the other. Any other issues or ideas on this topic would be appreciated.
