I haaaave a Savage 11G in .223...I would like to use it on bigger game also.
I read in another forum, that I can get a barrel in another caliber and with the proper wrench, install the new barrel in my rifle..
I presume go-no-go guages would also be necessary..

Can this be done.. and where would I get the wrench and guages ?

A bit off topic, but silhouette shooters wo

It can be done however if the "larger caliber" doesn't share the same bolt face as the .223 (most likely) you may have to change that as well. I believe I've seen the Savage barrel wrench in the Brownell's catalog.

Sharp Shooter Supply 419-695-3179 has your bolt heads, wrenchs etc. also does prefit barrels is a Savage "specialist" so to speak. pre threaded and chambered barrels are available now from many major barrel makers, Douglas, Pac-Nor, etc etc, I rec SSS for the change over parts particulary if your not up on this as they will advise and make sure you don't end up with a late model pin and early model bolt head or vise-versa.
