    for Pete's sake, just stick an M2 ball round in the rifle and SHOOT IT. The 30.06 can be chambered and shoots FINE in a 30.03 chamber (if it even IS an .03 chamber). Don't believe me? Look (real)...

    your rifle sounds like an original/correct rifle with a normal variation of component part hue variations (many of which can be made by Sub-K's).

    you have a NICE shooter/match rifle with ZERO historical or collector value.

    1. You don't need a spacer block..
    2. your gas port hole needs to be enlarged (forget exactly how much) to ensure enough gas to cycle the op-rod. (do a google search).

    I;m not sure where you get the idea that reduced loads are "only" used with faster powders when this is absolutely not correct. Many loading manuals have reduced loads of medium and slow powders to...

    you can get a .300 win mag or other belted magnum in that family of cartridges. if the case-head end (down near the primer) it goes in easily past the belt, the GC is worn. if it barely goes in,...

    There are plenty of reloading recipes on the internet. it's a big case, so you might want to use some type of case filler (I have used poly pillow ticking with success) with some powders. My best...
