So I am somewhat sure I may be off in la-la land on this one but tell me what you think. I was reading about the barrel making process on the Brux web sight the other day and it seams they drill a hole in the stock material and then run a special reamer through to take out the last bit of material for the finished land diameter. After that is when the rifling and contouring is done. SO... here is the question. When the bore is shot and its time for a new tube why couldn't we just send it in and have them rebore and rifle it for a larger caliber? Or if we want the same caliber buy a new barrel and get a core charge from the old one and they could rebore it and sell it to the next guy that wants something bigger. It seams like this would be an easy way to save the cost of the stock steel, the initial drilling (they said this step alone takes about 30 minutes each), and the contouring. I mean a shot out barrel is nothing more than a perfectly good blank that has a few thousandths of scorched metal inside that could be removed and new rifling cut into the good metal underneath it right? Now that I have revealed how ignorant I am please tell me what you think of this!!!
