I just want it to shot again. This was my first long range rig and I used it for a lot of rock chucks have since added a few more long range guns so when it gets re barreld it will be a big game gun only
will the after market barrels shoot better?
If the throat is the only thing worn out, have it rechambered to 7mmSTW, which will cut out the throat erosion and allow you to still make good use of the same barrel for around $150 by a smith. And for that money, he'll be truing up your headspacing, too, since he's remiving and reinstalling the barrel.
