    Tikka t3

    Does anyone know if the standard calibre tikka t3 (.243 .270 etc) uses the same bolt face as the magnum calibres (7mm rm 300win mag ) ?

    I'm just guessing that would be a resounding no. ~Muir

    No, it cannot. The 7mm Rem Mag and .300 Win Mag, like the .300 H&H, are based off the .375 H&H.

    For example, in something like the swappable, modular, SIG SHR970, made for them by JP Sauer, to change from .30-06 to .300 WM, you must change the barrel, bolt and magazine.

    Thanks for the replies I don't suppose any of you know if the bolt face could be opened up to take magnum a cartridge with the t3 action being one size in other words convert the .308 to a 300win mag ? Or would I need a different bolt

    I'm surprised at the politeness of the replies to this question.

    I was under the impression that if there was something you were not certain about it was better to ask my mistake

    Well. I was pretty sure when I posted that. Now I am doubting myself... I think I'll rebarrel my 308 as a 300 Win Mag and see if a round chambers. That will let me know if it has a magnum bolt face.
    It's the only thing I can do.~Muir
