Project in mind--rechambering 308 to 300wsm

I have a .308 on a Stiller Predator action, 26" Hart 1:10 w/ muzzle break, and I'm thinking I need to take more advantage of that foundation. I know it can be done, but is it just as expensive as buying a new gun? Between opening up the bolt face, widening rails, sourcing proper magazine box, rechambering, is it cost prohibitive?
Seems to me modifying your existing rifle would be quite a bit cheaper than a new build and perhaps a little cheaper than buying one off the shelf. Since you have a custom now it's unlikely you would be happy with a factory rifle. If it was me I would not want to run the risk of wishing I still had my .308 after I remodeled it..........I would build another complete rifle.

It's likely that no further discussion is required, in which case we recommend starting a new thread. If however you feel your response is required you can still do so.
