I'm finishing up a .20 VT build on a Rem 700 action and was thinking about a .357 SP.
I've looked through the files here but have not come across anything. I know the Contender folks use a .357 frequently and have good results.
Has anyone made a .357 in bolt action with the rim case?
I have 2 bolts for my Rem action, one in .473 (.308 etc) and the other .384 (223 etc).
After doing more research on this, I understand that the bolt face for the 7.62x39 is .4545 and that is what is required for the .357.
I'm a single shot guy, so I never worry about magazines.
Is it cost prohibited to take a bolt and rework it for the .357?
You have to have a coned breach for a 700 style bolt or you would have to remove the rim of the bolt face and allow a sako style extractor to extend infront similar to how a cz claw extractor does....this style will feed ok. The cone breach will not feed.
The cz action in 762x39 is a good one for this conversion.
A few years back a member built a 45-70 single shot bolt action pistol. He posted almost every detail of the build along with photos. It is also a rimmed cartridge so I would think most of what he learned would apply to your build. I believe he used the name Texas Brass. You should be able to find it using the search function.

That gun was built by, Mike Abel at Rogue Precision Gunworks - Grants Pass, OR. He built me a 350 legend. I wanted a 357 max, but he stated it wasn't possible.

Texas Brass is Cody Weiser...he’s a great dude.
When I initially read this post my first thought went to 350 Legend...same bolt face as 223, rimless to fix feed issues, and on par with 357 max performance...
