your probably right, and that case is in an overbore condition from the start. You'll end up with a 24" barrel, but doubt you'll see more than 100fps loss in velocity. I would slug the barrel to see if it has much errosion at the muzzel. Of
course you'd want to slug the barrel before doing anykind of barrel rework just to see if it's worth the effort to save it. The one thing going for it is that the case neck and shoulders tend to keep a lot of the heat out of the barrel throat and free bore area
