If so how much barrel would be sacrificed in doing so.
Thank you for any help.
I would say that it is not practical because of the bolt face and the removal
of the entire chamber before rechambering.
If you want a 280 I would look for a don-er and build of it. (A 25-06, 270, 280,3006) would
be the best choice to build off of.
Or unscrew the barrel and replace it and the bolt with a .470 bolt face. and then get a watts
box with center feed because the rails will be to open for the 280.
