New barrel

Looking to rebarrel a 7mm mag into a 264 but have no clue what to look for or who to buy barrels from! Any tips??.

    There are plenty of excellent barrels out there but I like Lilja Precision Rifle Barrels and Dan Lilja is very easy to talk to. Work closely with whoever is doing the gunsmithing.

    Good luck!
