    7mm barrel

    After a take off barrel or a cheap new one for a Win Model 70 (or one that can have the action thread re-cut) so I can re-barrel my 243 to 7x57.

    Anything considered.

    Cheers.

    Is there enough magazine length in your 243? Might be better going 708

    Some old win 70'were based on the long action. With a magazine block in the back to limit the length .

    What he said.

    Grind it out and you have 3.1" of mag. Plus I hate 7-08 with a passion (no offence).

    If you don't like the 7-08, you could neck up your .243 brass to .284 and have a 284-243.

    Sorry I just remembered that the barrel is chambered to. 284 not 7mm08. As to money I'm not really fussed. Just a fair offer would do it.

    I have a 7mm POS Hardy Carbon barrel here, chamber is probably a bit big & bent for what you want though....

    I have looked in that Tomato Stake @Kiwi Greg...

    Maybe 284 is the answer...
