22 K-hornet?

How easy is it to rechamber a 22 hornet to a 22 k-hornet? How much would something like this usually cost?

Thanks.

Re: 22 K-hornet?

It shouldn't be a problem, but it depends on the rifle being used. It's similar in theory to Re-chambering a standard bbl to an Ackley improved chamber by setting back the bbl and cutting the improved chamber there bycleaning up the shoulder and throat.

You would have to either find a smith who has a .22 K-Hornet reamer or get one from a reamer Manufacturer like Pacific Tool and Gauge (site Sponser).

As far as cost, that depends on the gunsmith doing the chamber and the cost of the reamer.

It's quite a neat little cartridge. I've seen one in a Winchester Low wall single shot rifle once. They are really cool!

I was looking at the Savage model 40, looks like a neat little gun.
