I have a barrel from an old Mauser 98, I have just fired 300 rounds throu this barrel.

Can this barrel be rechamberde to 25 Winchester Super Short Magnum (WSSM) or some other wildcat?


It is a very good custom barrel and I hope to put it on a different action/project

You would have to chop off about 1.5 cm of barrel to lose most of the original chamber & then have the barrel reamed for the chamber you want. Then you would have to rework the magazine for shells of a totally different shape. Sounds plausible, but I don't know if there is anything to gain and a lot of work and/or money involved. You would likely be better off selling what you have & buying what you want, either complete or as components.
