Hi, I do 95% of hunting with handguns to be legal in the southern half of Michigan & one of my friends wanted me to go Bear hunting in Canada where as you know would not let me bring my handgun into the country so I decided to buy a rifle. This was about the time when Remington came out with the 300 SAUM so I bought one in a Model 700 BDL SS. I had a new HS Precision stock laying around so I mated them up, mounted a 4 1/2-14 Leupold on it, sighted in for 50 yards, went with my friend & killed yogie. The rifle has sat in the safe since then. When another of my friends with a lot of land asked me to come up to his place & shoot chuck's at long range I thought that that rifle would do great as it has more horse power than my other rifles. I ordered Redding Full & neck bushing dies ,Competition seating die body die & allot of new brass. This is when things got interesting. When checking for my seating depth with 180 gr MK's or Nosler BT's I found that at a length to be able to fit in the magazine box I would be close to .030 away from the lands. I also found when checking fired cases that the case neck expanded .008 over loaded round. Best load groups are 3/4" @ 100--- not acceptable. I know it's not operators error as I can just about drive nails with my SR-25 & custom AR's & other rifles. I was thinking of just putting it back in the safe until I get enough spare change to get it rebarreled when my friend suggested I take it to the smith he has had rebarrel about 5 of his rifles all of which shoot great & have the barrel set back just a few turns & rechambered with a Min spec SAAMI chamber, throated for the bullets I want to use at a length that will fit in the magazine box. I told him to ask his gunsmith if he thought this would be feasible on a SS factory barrel with about 150 rounds down the tube. He just gave me a call and said he talked to his smith and he told him that doing that should do the trick & that the cost would be $100.00 which I consider very reasonable if it works as I am now retired & on a fixed income. I have been lurking here for some time now & really enjoy this site. I've never had a barrel rechambered Should I let him give it a try?? Your opinions please & THANKS in advance.
