Re: Question about Remington 700 barrel
If your going to go through with a re-barrel buy a new quality blank and do it the best you can. Re-chambering that barrel will cost you about the same as doing it from a blank and you'll end up with a better product with a Krieger, Brux, Bartlein, etc. The new blank is about 100.00 more than that one and you can pick the contour, length, and twist. Yes your action can be used for a 30-06 with no modifications but will require bolt face and follower/feed rail work to be used as a .300wm.
