    If the cost is right, Id like to rebarrel my savage 110 from .223 to .220 Swift. The gun came factory in .223 so the question is will the same bolt face work with the .220 case or do I need a new bolt face, or will it not work entirely with the action?

    Or does anyone have a custom caliber of a .375 H&H mag necked down to a .22 cal bullet?:what:

    You'll need a new bolt head. The head diameter of the .223 is .378" and the .220 Swift is .473. You'll need a new magazine as well, if you intend to feed through the magazine. I don't know if the magazine well of your rifle will accept the longer magazine needed for the .220 Swift, though.
