I too want slightly different twists/ calibres. My solution will be to cut and thread in a new blank in my old barrel when it is shot out. It will not cost more than a normal rebarrel job.
Roe, love your you tube vid's.
I would be very interested to hear how your gunsmith goes with the cutting and re-clambering of your old Blaser barrel.
When I have swapped barrels on my rifles, and given them a knock, they positively RING. There steel is harder than the hobs of hell. ( Australian saying ).
I suppose anything can be cut with the right tooling, or an EMD machine ? But getting an acceptable finish would be the trick.
