Anyone make a high-capacity bolt in something like 30.06? (new production)

Or a new production bolt that loads by stripper clip (like a Mauser)?

Well, you could put an M14 magazine into the well of a Ruger M77.

stripper clip loading is strictly a military deal and as the last bolt action issued for general service (ie other than sniper rifles) was the Ishy Enfield 2a1 in 1966 I'd say your outa luck for a modern version using stripper clips.

As far as High cap...... several that use detachable mags but not really high cap as high capacity is pretty much strictly an assault rifle thing do to the higher rate of full auto fire not really applicable to the uses the military has for bolt guns (again sniper use) so no reason to build a high cap bolt gun......

HS precision makes a 10rd conversion for the Rem700. Another maker makes one as well, but the name escapes me..

Steyr makes some bolt guns with 10-round box mag kits.

You can get 5-round detachable box mags for Tikka T3 rifles.

Brockman's will set up a rifle for stripper clip use:

Precision rifle based on a Remington 700 action, made in England and available in 5.56 or 7.62. The 5.56 version feeds from any AR type magazine and the 7.62 version feeds from any M14 magazine. Very popular in service rifle competitions.

Standard SMLE mags are ten rounds. I had thought I had heard of a 20 round mag for it but I think was just gun shop talk and urban legend.

I seem to remember seeing detachable 10 round kits for Savage as well, though I don't recall if it was HSP or someone else.

It's not new production, but you consider an Indian Enfield 2A in .308 Nato for about $180, 12 round magazine capacity.
