Default Unable to leave well enough alone lol

So got eyes on a factory 30/06 handi and of course got curious as to what can be done with it as I dont currently shoot 06 nor have anywhere nearby that itd get a chance to stretch its legs.
So far have got a 444 marlin, two 500 s&w, a 45/70 and 243 win handi.
Was wondering if the 06 could be a donor for conversion to say 41 mag (414 supermag ) or 44 ( 445 supermag ) ?

Neither could be made from a 30-06 since the 30-06 chamber is too wide at the case head, .471" vs .434" for the 41mag and .457" for the 445, you'd need a hornet, 223, 30-30 or 357 donor barrel.

Here's my idea: .480 Ruger or .475 Linebaugh

Appears to clean up an '06 or 308 chamber.

Whaddya tink?

35 Whelan would work nice.

The OAL might be too short. But if dia is enough... You would possibly get a funky leade. But I didnt compair drawings.

Possibly a 444...

Why not swap your '06 bbl for something Timmy suggested and then send off for a re bore to caliber ya would like?

Wish I could find a 357 mag/max barrel without selling organs 🙂

Put a want to buy ad in the WTB H&R classified for a .357 barrel and another add to sell your '06 barrel. You'll find one soon enough. Just be patient. Or go to the tc encore or contender platform. It's not a sin.

I'm actually in the process of picking up a contender, but I was hoping I could do something with it .
