As always, the answer depends, but here's a laundry list of potential cost:

Custom Barrel: $325 + Shipping
Barrel Installation: $300+
Action Blueprinting: $250

That will get the big part of the project done. From there you will want to consider whether you want to replace the trigger and stock. If you have a Remington stock, I would recommend changing it to a good aftermarket stock and have your action bedded into that stock. A decent stock will cost ~$200+ and bedding will cost ~$100.

Stay tuned, this particular rifle is about to change rather dramatically. Will post pics and list the changes soon.

In the Remington I mentioned the Velocity is only 2830 with a 3 FPS SD.

Re: My 280 - Updated!

As I mentioned before, this rifle is about to undergo a major transformation in order to reduce weight as I'm getting tired of lugging this 10lb rifle up and down hills. I'm hoping to bring it down to ~8lbs.

The stock has been sold and the barrel was removed and installed on my Nephew's Transformed Rifle!

All that's left of my rifle is the action. It is at the gunsmith now having a new 280Rem barrel contoured and installed. Haven't decided on a stock yet but needless to say it will have to be 'light.'
