    Rechambering 6.5CM to 6.5 PRC


    Just wanting to make sure I'm not missing anything -

    I am thinking of having my 6.5 CM barrel rechambered to 6.5 PRC. This is on a short action (3.00" box). I know I will need to swap bolt faces. I don't plan on loading any ammo longer than 2.950"

    What am I missing? Any issues with having a 6.5 PRC on a small shank?

    Thanks!

    No problem. It will be fine in a Small Shank. May need to mess with the internal mag feeding. Maybe not.

    What are they charging you to re-chamber? Unless it is very cheap I'd probably just pick up another barrel chambered in prc. 6.5CM ammo is considerably cheaper and more available- so the ability to go back to it when you are not needing the additional speed could come in handy.

    Anyone know where to get a bolt face other than PTG?
    Is there a Savage factory bolt face that can be used?

    I'd imagine a factory 300wsm bolt head would work.

    I would agree on a magnum bolt head. Rim is .532, correct?

    This one will work. https://www.gunpartscorp.com/products/1353540C

    It’s for a Long Action, so if using it in a Short Action it will need to be modified. This link shows the difference in length of the shank. https://www.savageshooters.com/conte...Configurations
