Barrel size? Please explain more. If your having a rifle built buy a barrel blank. The action should be trued, if you skip this step there really is no point in not just taking your chances with a factory rifle. In truing your action the rifle smith may end up cutting your action threads to a bigger diameter to fix any issue with the action threads being out of round. This was my issue.
Additionally HOWA threads are metric Remington threads are standard. On a barrel with a long enough shank it may be possible to have enough barrel left to re thread it after the old threads are removed. I most cases I would say no.
