Switching Barrels.

I am planing to replace the Barrel on my .308 to a better quality one. the action was already blue printed/lugs were done and just about anything I can think of.
QUESTION?...If I switch my Barrel is there any other work that must be done to the action?
I can keep all work @ tolerances of of better than NASA close. We have a Machine shop/tool and die, with grinders and Machines that would make any one go WOW!

Re: Switching Barrels.

If the action has already been blueprinted, than no, there's nothing that absolutely needs to be done to the action. Just thread, chamber amd crown as normal. I prefer though to use a Holland recoil lug rather than the factory recoil lug, as it's usually never parrallel. If you go with a different recoil lug you will have to re-bed the action again though. But now is the time to replace the recoil lug if you haven't already.
