    Any CALIBER can use that bolt face. Even the .500.

    You mean what CARTRIDGES.

    If you are looking to rebarrel a .308 to another cartridge you also have to worry about the cartridge length. You will need a short action cartridge to have it feed from the mag. Something like .260, 6.5 Creedmoor, .243, 7-08 etc.

    30-06 along with some of the others mentioned, even though they have the same boltface, are long action cartridges.

    No I'm looking to rebarrel from other cartridge to .308 and could use a LA or SA. Just wanted to know what caliber actions to look for if I find somthing used.Looking to build a shorty hunting rifle in .308 so all my rifles are the same caliber and don't need to stock a lot of different ammo. My personal weapon is a REM 700 LA .308 20" barrel with a 10 round mag and it shoots a little over 1/2" groups at 100 Yards with federal 168 national match as long as I do my part.

    There is an easy way to find your answer...

    Take a look in a good reloading manual. You're looking for any cartridge with a .473 case head measurement.
