You are correct about the family of cartridges. I knew a gentleman that had a Winchester model 1894 that had a 30-30, 32-40 and 38-55 barrel. What a great idea.Is it possible to build a takedown rifle with a set of barrels around a particular family of cartridges. For instance a set that included 25-35, 30-30, 32 special and 38-55. Or maybe 218 Bee, 25-20 and 32-20 in a short action rifle? I guess anything is possible. What I might should ask is how feasible is a set such as those?
The magazine and receiver would be different for the other calibers you referenced. Don't think they would work in the 30-30 receiver.
