    Never done the conversion myself. Not much to it other than a barrel and the labor to spin it on. At that point you may want to have some other work done. If it hasn't been done yet I would suggest at least a trigger job and bedding the action. Both are relatively inexpensive to do. You may also want to look into a muzzle brake.

    I do own a rifle in a 338 rum and love the cartridge. My gun was built by Defensive Edge and has one of their brakes on it. The brake makes it a real pleasure to shoot.

    Good luck and Welcome to LRH

    Also have the smith blue print the action while it is apart and before the new barrel is
    screwed on for accuracy.

    The 338 RUM is a great cartrige and will do in big animals at great distances.
