Does anyone know of a maker of bolt action uppers other than 50bmg. I would like to get one I could barrel in a little more sensible caliber, like '06,or maybe 458 win mag.

the serbu looks like a bit much, But the BOHICA looks just right, 50 is tempting, but, I am just getting too old and tired. Putting in a call tomorrow to see what the posibilities are, maybe a .50/110

A lot of companies make .510 DTC. Ferret makes a .338 Lapua. You can always just get a 6.8 or a .308 upper and disable the gas system, go with the side charging uppers if you'd prefer.

Serbu doesn't offer uppers, just complete rifles. Mark has done custom chamberings for his rifles, so it may be possible. Plan on custom stuff taking longer than "two weeks", much longer.

Bohica offers uppers in a couple different calibers, 50 BMG , 50 DTC-EDM, 416 Barrett, 338 Lapua Magnum. Delivery times have been on the long side, but apparantly getting better. Don't know if he'll do any custom stuff.

Not aware of any of the other upper makers offering any other chamberings besides .50BMG and .50DTC.

Although I only have Dave's .338 LM he offers .510 DTC, .408 Chey-Tac and probably would do 375/408 or other calibers.

The barrel doesn't even need to be chambered or installed, in fact I would be happy with a bolt and upper, and threading specs of course. The more I think about it, .375 H&H mag or .458 win mag, or possibly some of the larger metric calibers.

Almost forgot, Bushmaster .450 and .458 Socom just disable the gas system. Again you can just swap the original upper receiver out for a side charging upper.

don't like side charging uppers, bolt action more my cup of tea, Having REH Industries build me a single shot lower
