Before ordering a barrel, Tell us what you have (Brand of rifle, action length, existing caliber.
type of stock, ETC also the caliber you think you want and these guys will tell you all that has
to be done and some other choices that may be better and less work to install.

It is not wise to enter into a rifle build unless you know all of the aspects of the build before starting.

Just some friendly advice.

    This is exactly why I love this forum!
    I was thinking about buying a 308 anD turning it into a 6.5 creedmoor but now leaning toward doing the same thing but wit the savage I currently have!
    It is a model 11 in 7mm-08, is this possible or a good idea?

    There are several choices for a simple barrel change (No action modifications) The 7/08 is a 308
    necked down to 7mm. the 260 rem is a 308 necked down to 6.5 and the 243 is a 308 necked to 243
    These are all basically spin offs of the 308 so they will all work in your action without any
    modifications to it.

    The 6.5 creedmoor is a good round and so is the 6.5x47 but are not the same parent case as the
    308 and may not work as well unless installed by a smith.

    I have built lots of the 6.5s and if you are going to do it your self I recomend the 260 rem.

    All you will need is a barrel wrench for the savage barrel nut. (About $30.00) and a Head space
    gauge for the 260 rem ($35.00) and a pre threaded and chambered barrel.

    We can walk you through assembly if you need the help.

    If this was all so "dummy proof" I wouldn't be nearly as busy as I am fixing 'do-it-your-selfers' &$^@ - ups!
