Re: 30-06 to 300 win. magnum
Also, think hard before changing this rifle. If you plan to reload one day, my strong suggestion is have it verified as safe for a project like this, then put it away until you're a reloader.
THEN have it worked on.
Because you can do A LOT of really unique/cool/unusual stuff with a 1917.....you don't want to do it twice.
You could go into a Weatherby round, an H&H round, or any manner of wildcats or legitimate but obscure rounds. The sky's the limit with a handloader and a 1917.
If it were me, I'd be holding onto that sucker and really doing my homework to see what I'd love in a chambering, and then dive into it headfirst once you're capable of feeding that chambering with handloads.
Just a thought.
