My barrel is shot on my 300RUM and at first was thinking about jumping up to a 330 edge, but am thinking money wise if it would be better to just have him re-chamerber/re-barrel and true up the action on my sendero. Hope all this makes sense.
The cheapest thing to do is have him rechamber your exisiting barrel to "renew" your throat. Have someone take a borescope to it and make sure your current bbl is really shot out.
The next thing, which would be my choice, would be to replace the whole barrel with whichever brand suits you and blueprint the action.
Since you are thinking money wise, it doesn't make a lot of sense to me to go with a wildcat because that means new brass, fireforming it, new dies, possibly new powders to try, etc.
Caliber choices are all personal preference. I have a 300 RUM and there's not a warm blooded animal that I have on my list to kill that will survive the big bullets I push from it. So for me personally, I don't need anything bigger than the cannon I shoot now.
