Newbie question, but search doesn't yield anything.

I have an idle 308 Remington 700 that I want to build into something on a 223 bolt face using a barrel nut setup. Is it sufficient to get a new bolt body and use the same shroud, firing pin, and spring, or should I use a complete replacement 223 bolt assembly?

Thanks in advance.

Yes bolt internals are the same. Are you planning to run mags? If not will need to replace follower and spacer
