Converting B-78

Registered Users do not see the above ad.

I originally posted this question in the rifles section, but it really should be here. What is involved in rechambering a .30-06 to .300 WM? Assuming that all the blocks are similar would a simple reamer do the job?

I suspect the extractor would have to be modified or replaced to match the larger case diameter of the Magnum cartridge.
