Re: Remington 700 7mm STW

If you rechamber a 7 rem, can you just change barrels on the rifle or does the chamber need boring out.

Many here would say that you should put a match grade barrel on the rifle if you are bothering to do work to it. It depends somewhat on if it shoots or not to start with; if it's a so-so shooter ditch the barrel and get a good aftermarket barrel installed.

BTW, welcome to the forum.
thanks lefty. I am asking for my nephew. We both have senderos but he was given a 7mm mag. I suggested to have it chambered for stw for a back up.
