Rebarrel a 243 into a 260

Does anyone know where I can rebarrel a remington 700 243 into a 260. I want a quality barrel, maybe a krieger. I got a nice set up on the 243 but I want the better ballistic of the 260 to shoot paper and steel at 1000 yards.

anyone?

    JE Custom can do it and then hill country rifles in New Braunfels, texas. HCR usually charges 900 which is a new barrel, chamberings, and truing/rethreading your receiver.

    I did exactly what you want to do. I went with a Brux barrel and medium weight.

    340 for the barrel and 2XX..?? to chamber and install it.

    BTW...Ive got a Remington 243 barrel here I want to get rid of if you know anyone
