I have a Remington 700 Classic in 8mm mag, I am having a terrible time locating brass. I was thinking of having it re barreled to the 338 Edge, thinking that it is unlikely that 300 ultra brass will become scarce, agree or disagree? Please give an opinion on this idea: keep the existing stock (sentimental nicks and scratches from elk gone by, have it glass bedded, 26 inch? fluted stainless barrel, timney trigger and a brake. I realize worth is in the eye of the beholder, but thinking this may be a great way to repurpose a gun that sits in my safe for a reasonable amount of dollars. Please let the opinions fly.
P.S. would a factory 8mm barrel be worth anything on the used market?
