    Hey all, I have a model 1917 rechambered in .300 weatherby that is in desperate need of a new barrel. What would you guys recommend for barrels? It has to be 26 inches and I would like it fluted.

    There are many barell makers that could complete a new one for you. I have a Shilen on a 300 wby and am very happy with it. It really depends on your rife. Some of sporterized rechambred rifles are barely up to the strenght task. Make sure and have your smith go through it.
