      Hello TJ.

      They really cant br re barreled except by the factory because they have the recoil lugs machined in the barrel instead of the receiver and there the gas port that you have to contend with also.

      I like the looks but my experience has been that they ether shoot well or they don't. If they don't
      there is nothing you can do about it.

      If he has one that won't shoot very well the best thing to do is sell it and buy a bolt gun.

      Gas guns are problematic because the loads must be adjusted for the correct port pressure
      to function well and shoot well so if it's accuracy he wants any bolt is better and easy to improve.

      Like I said I like them but I don't own one anymore. Most people that like them don't reload
      and are happy with 2 MOA at 100 yards.

      I hope this doesn't hurt his feelings because it's just my opinion

      Clarify:
      His BAR is wearing something like a 20-22" pipe + a boss.

      My rifle is wearing a 26" fluted Hart 10 twist in a #4 contour + a brake

      Question for a buddy,
      He's got a Browning BAR, chambered in 300 Win.
      He asked me if it was possible to re pipe it.
      I have no idea.
      Heck I don't even like them for what I do with a rifle.
      Anyhow, he'd like to re barrel it (if its possible) with a 26" pipe, like the one i have on my Win-70 bolt gun. Its wearing fluted Hart #4 contour 10 twist plus a break.
      Thanks
      TJ

      Hello my name is Reuben and I'm in the process of building a 416-375 RUM. I was wondering the difference between this and your 416 Buff? I will be using either swift or Barnes bullets from 350 to 400 grains. I will most likely use the 400 a-frames and hope to see 2600 from either a 26" or 28" pacnor tube. I would really appreciate any info you can share, powder choices, bullets, primers. I will use this as my guide rifle as some of the animals bite back. Safe shooting.

      Hi Jerry
      the barrel was done by Lilja, i offered the gunsmith over here who is the dealer $500 for another barrel but he rejected the offer, he wants to replace it but it will cost me $$ to send it also i dont want to wait another 6 mths for the job to be done. Jerry have u reloaded the 230 Berger in the 30/378? i am having conflicting loading data, i will use 2218 (50BMG) and the 20n29 Vaht. Canu suggest starting loads?
      Cheers

      Hello Ray.

      Where did the barrel come from ?

      I would not have been happy with it ether. The finish is about normal but the nick
      from the milling process is not. The mullet doing the fluting should have rejected
      it and gave you another barrel.

      They will probably tell you it will be Ok but that remains to be seen and proven.

      If it was a job I was doing for a friend I would send it back and have them send me another.
      (Not repair that one).
