    Savage 110 long action bolt face and bolt head conversion question ?

    Finally after months of looking , found a brand new Savage factory long action but with a magnum bolt face which is .540. I'm building a rifle in 6.5xx 55 Swede and need a standard bolt face in .473 . Yes I bot the action knowing I would have to do the conversion and did not want to wait. I have not done one before . Midway has bolt heads for the change over . My question is the level of difficulty to do this my self. I YouTubed it but has anyone here actually done this and give me the do's and don'ts . Seems rather easy as I take AR bolts apart all the time. Thanks .

    If it is just disassembling the bolt and reassembling with new face it's not difficult. If there is any fitting involved (shouldn't be as you'll be headspacing anyway) than I'm not sure.
