Re: Browning BAR 308 conversion to 6.5 what?

I love the 2 bar's I have, one's an FNar, but a model they made on special order with a hunting stock. I called Browning about converting to 260 as I want a rifle in that round that's a semi-automatic and they said they don't do it, maybe special order though? I scraped the thought and decided if I want a semi-auto in 260 then an ar-10 is the way to go. I didn't like the thought of a gunsmith trying to re barrel in 260 with an aluminum receiver. If I had to go the bar 260 route I'd find an older one with a steel receiver, they are cheaper and if it works out, you have a real custom bar. I don't think it will ever have any real value in the after market though. So you better enjoy and burn that barrel out. If you want a brush buster bar, get the 300 win mag, you'll bush brush and be able to stretch out over the bean field. I love the accuracy and reliability of my BAR. They really ar amazing for not being a bolt gun. So accurate and simple, just plain fun to hunt with. My 308 has an 18" barrel, it's like carrying around a toothpick.
