Also 7.62X54(R).
But, head space gauge specifically for the 7.62 Russian will NOT work in the Krag or the British, base is to fat, won't sit down in the chamber !..........

Just LOOKS refinished to me, when you buy from people like these folks, you buy at your own risk... If I can't handle a firearm, I will NOT buy it !................

Re: Bolt Action 50 Alaskan Chambered Rifles

I don't think the strength of your action is the problem, being that the .50 Alaskan is a fairly low pressure cartridge. I'm going to say with a Rim diameter of 15.5 mm, that bolt face and finding a barrel chambered in .50 Alaskan to fit said action is going to be your biggest problem !................
