You can't set it back to chamber a 308 unless you cut the entire chamber out.
I have built several 24" barreled 300 RUMs for carry, and to add a muzzle brake. They don't give up much velocity with the 180 class bullets and are very handy to hunt with. for heavy bullets (200
+ grains)a 26" or 28" barrel will make a difference.
The other option is to set the tenon back and chamber for a 300 short mag in a short or long action.
