If you want to keep the barrel, I would think setting it back about a 1/4" to !/2" would take care of the belly.
Definitely get it bore scoped before you spend anything on it.
I would agree with you 100% if it were a screw in barrel with the recoil lugs in the receiver But
The 7400 Remington is an automatic and has the recoil lugs machined into the barrel. re barreling with a custom barrel would be very expensive so In my opinion the best way to fix the problem
would be to enlarge the chamber to an AI or replace it with a new factory barrel.
I don't know how much a factory barrel will cost and it would probably have to be sent to Remington
to be installed and head spaced.
Just a comment for what it's worth.
