    Default Switch barrel on Remington 700

    I have a Remington 700 SA that I currently shoot 308 Win from using a heavy Krieger barrel I chambered for the rifle. Its in a chassis that will also take 223 magazines (AICS).

    I would like to do up a barrel in 223 Rem. I have a blank heavy 223 barrel and a new Remington 700 short action bolt made for 223 Rem.

    Is there anything special I need to take into consideration in the cartridge / barrel / bolt swap?

    Can I just take all the measurements with the new bolt in the old action and take it from there with the machining of the barrel?
