I have a Smith &Wesson 1500 (Howa) in 223 and the barrel has some bad pitting from sitting in my uncles basement for 15 years untouched....:(
I want to use the action and stock for a 308 build but can't seem to find replacement barrels on the net.
The action looks well built and strong so I'm sure I'm not the first guy to do this project.
What calibers can the 223 size action handle? 300 WSM
I see there is spacer in the mag well so I know the 308 will fit.
Anyone know where I can buy a pre fabricated barrel or do I have to order a custom one?
Has anyone tackled this action before?
Thanks in advance..
