Re: throat too short
It depends on your skill level and access to the necessary tooling.
Have a local machine shop make you a bushing .701 OD with a .4375 ID appoximately 2.5" long. The back side needs to be turned 90 degrees to the bore.
You will need a PT&G piloted throating reamer with the correct bushing.
You will need a PT&G Uni Throater.
I recomend a Lambeth/Kiff Micrometer Adjustable Reamer Stop.
It can be done with a with a .4375 ID Bushing with a locking set screw.
Absent the Lambeth/Kiff Micrometer Adjustable Reamer Stop you will need some form of measuring devices IE: feeler gauges and micrometers.
Remove the throat in incremental steps as you cann't put metal back.
Measure throat and cut a little, then measure again.
If you cut to much you will have to set the barrel back.
ps. the tooling for doing this job will cost approximately:
Piloted Throating Reamer $698.00
Additional bushings $11.00 each
PT&G Uni Throater $69.00
Lambeth/Kiff Micrometer Adjustable Reamer Stop $189.00
PT&G Reamer bushing $30.00
Bolt Race Bushing .701 OD .4375 ID by 2.5" approximately $35.00
Barrel Set back $225.00
