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?

Where are you located - there are a lot of sponsors on this site that could do it.

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
