    Roedale and others make a new bottom metal set up that allows you to use the Accuray International mags.
    Not a cheap way of doing it though.

    There are quite a few AICS type mag systems out there. Roedale, Alutec, CDI and possibly MM Sporting.
    Don't forget they all take a bit of work to get fitted properly.
    Normally the original T3 mags work quite well.

    Sorry my bad, I think most of those systems are for 308/223. I am after something for a 30-06.

    Roedale, bottom metal should work in the 30-06. the mags will cost more.

    The T3 has one action and magazine length, only difference is stoppers on the bolt and blocks in the mag, hence you can use a .308 magazine in a .223.
    I've not shot driven boar - would like to though - but it seems like you'll go through an awful lot of cost and effort, possibly introducing reliability issues, for a gain of 4 rounds.
    Would the 5+1 and a spare mag not suffice?

    Mike, Roedale has two different mag systems.
    One uses AICS magazines and is, as far as I know limited to short action and the other is a mag system
    that is almost identical to the original just made of metal and will take all original T3 mags.
