Savage Receiver Question

Will a Savage receiver chambered in .223 be able to accommodate, with the correct bolt head, a .308 chambering? Or is the action too short?

Thanks all.

With the right bolt head I wouldn't think there would be any issues. Though you'll probably need a different magazine as well.

Yeah, the receivers are the short action that accepts .223 and .308 as far as I know.

The models with two digits IE 10 is for a short action and models with three digits are long action for Savage rifles.

Gunshack and Midway typically have bolt faces for Savage rifles. You will need a .473 bolt face.
