.270 sendero into .338 edge

I have a Sendero in .270 win that i have been thinking about converting for a while but got side tracked with a 6.5 284 project.I havent been on here in a while and was looking for some info and advice on converting the gun into a 338 edge.I work in a machine shop and have the availabilty of everything I need to do so but a reamer,no big deal.Im not sure if it is possible to buy a barrel chambered in the edge was just kind of wondering if anybody could lead me to a book or prints that i could get the information for threading and chambering a rifled barrel. im probably going to throw a sako extractor on the bolt since i will have to convert the bolt face anyways,unless there is something new that i am unaware of.i am open to any ideas and information that would help me converting this gun..thanks for your time.

Re: .270 sendero into .338 edge

Its pretty straight forward.

Open the bolt face, add an Sako Extractor. Screw on a Sender taper fluted barrel, chamber it and add a brake. I sent mine to Montana a kind fella up there did it.

Do some googling. There's info out there.
