Me too! I got a hold of used (just a few rounds through her) heavy sporter barrel off a Savage 116 SS small shank with MB, 50 prepped shells, and Lee dies set. Will be putting on a 111F when I get the opportunity ... will be joining the brotherhood.

BTW, got the above parts from an LRH member who posted it on classifieds.

I've heard of people buying STW chamber reamers and upgrading their lesser-chambered 7 barrels to STW. I've always assumed that reaming meant lathe action. But since I'm no smith (just a big dummy, I guess), I don't know that for sure. Is reaming-up a chamber to fit a larger size case something that someone WITHOUT a lathe could do?

I'd personally have a smith use a lathe on it. Otherwise, it's a bit of a crap-shoot as to whether you are getting a straight, round chamber. You might be alright, but you might not.

OK, then. It's doable, but it looks like the odds of screwing it up would be pretty high. I'll just let it stay as it is then (7RM). Got lots of THAT brass, anyways.
