Re: 30-06 rechamber?

get a kreiger barrel 300 plus 150 to install. 1 in 8.5 twist. get a 6.5-284. do not use any old brass. get new lapua. use h-4350 or re-17. 120 baltip, or 125 partition or whatever you want

Re: 30-06 rechamber?

I also have a 30-06 that I bought new earlier this year it is a Rem 700 LSS, and I had the barrel cut back to 20" to turn it into a super handy deer/medium game rifle/cartridge combo.

I would love to rebarrel it but I wouldn't go smaller I would go bigger to a 375 Hawk this is 280 Rem brass necked up .375" cal and fire-formed should be able to get a 260gr Accubond with it's .475 BC to 2600fps and be able to easily reach out to 400 yards.

I hunt in many areas with open terrain that allow for long shots in the desert, but I do not want a dedicated LR rifle, I am looking for a sporting rifle.

The donor gun is an older BDL Mountain with a short sportster barrel. What kind of price range should I expect to pay for a quality barrel installed.
If installing the barrel is ALL you wanted to do, it would be around $650. If you start adding stocks, triggers etc. of course the price would go up......Rich

Re: 30-06 rechamber?

I'm on the same situation except my -06 got ruined. I'm saving up to make it a 6.5-06 AI shooting 140 gr VLD's....will be my long range do everything up to do deer and target gun. Other option is a 6.5-280AI, but price of dies got me going back to 6.5-06AI. Good luck with your choice and let us know what you decide!

$650 for a barrel blank and installation? What are you having done to that barrel blank besides getting it chambered, threaded and head space set? Most all barrel manufactures blanks are in the $300 range and I have never paid more than $175.00 to have a barrel installed. I guess I missed something somehwere
