It sounds like you just have the action? Several of the barrel makers will fit one of their barrels and chamber it to your liking. I would contact one of them and you will likely end up with a better shooting rifle than if you just screwed another factory barrel on your action. Try "Benchmark" and have them quote you a price.........Rich

I'll echo everything Rich said. Benchmark, Pac-Nor, Hart, Montour County Rifles, Long Rifles, Inc. Any of those would be able to provide the same services as Rich described. We also have several in-house gunsmiths that frequent here on the forum, that I'm sure would also be able to help you out. JE Custom, Kirby Allen, Chase Curtis, etc...

If it were my rifle (I don't mind toting around a heavy barreled rifle), I would find a Bartlein 5R 7mm 1:9 twist in a Rem Varmint/Sendero countour, and have it finished-out at 26". You will love the 7mm-08 even more than you already do, because you will be able to shoot the big heavy 180gr bullets to really reach on out and hit targets and still carry the energy way out there. It's basically the same equivilent to those of us who shoot heavies in the .308 Win. Or you could shoot the 168 VLD's and have a great whitetail load that's got a great combination of speed and energy.

Thanks for the response runrunner I'd love a barrel like that but there like 350 400 bucks the what the gunsmith charges to cut and install the barrel. I'd like to sped that much just over my price range. Not many smith's by me in ny at lest no good one

Well they sure don't give them away. Keep an eye on the classifieds and maybe find a decent blank or barrel. Either way you're going to have to pay a smith. It is not uncommon to mail your action to a smith for work. My smith here in NM has done work for guys in Australia.

I have not put together the Remington version, but the Savage only takes a few tools, the gauges for your cartridge, and a few minutes work.

Give Jim Briggs a call at Northland Shooter Supply.

Unless you can do the work yourself, you are going to be spending close to $600. (at least $500). The barrel alone will cost $300-$350.........Rich
