Re chamber

I was told a 308 can be rechambered to a 6.5 creedmoor and a 7 mm mag to a 264! Is that true if so how do I o that is it just changing the barrel and calling it a day or am I missing a lot in between?!? Thanks for ur help

If you mean 7 to a 264 WM, yep, just change out bbl and chamber accordingly. I don't know anything about the Creedmoor

If you have a 7mm Rem Mag, and want to change it to a 264 Win Mag (I don't know why anyone would want to do that), then buy a new barrel, and the builder will cut, crown, and chamber the new pipe and fit it to the action. So, yes, it's that simple. Chamber accordingly, meant, to whatever you want so long as it matches the action and bolt face.

Re: Re chamber

I'm going to take a guess and assume you know that in the above scenario you do need to buy a barrel that is a 6.5mm right?
