Thats what i want to do! but he is already kinda surprised/mad at the cost of buying the dies, bullet, and cost of gunsmithing for my 284 win so i dont think he would be to happy about paying the $95 fee of installing a brake and the $85 for the brake itself. i dont think he realizes that this will be a regular thing either . The gun shoots horrible so he might sell it. Would a rem 700 25-06 work for a rebarrel to a 30/375 S.I?
