Hi, all -
I'm not saying that I'm going to do this, but I did get to wondering how involved it might be.
I'm bidding on a used Sako rifle in .338 on gunbroker. In my Barnes reloading manual, it says the "parent" case for this caliber is the .458, and indeed, several of the dimensions are identical. So...what would it take to convert this rifle to .458, should I get the crazy idea to do so?
I know nothing about this process, so I'm wondering simple questions like: could the action remain untouched? Could I use the same magazine? Etc.
Thanks for any insights or opinions...
