    anyone got a 7mm-08 or 260 barrel going cheap or swap

    im after a sportier weight 260 (prefer) or 7mm-08 barrel to replace the heavy long one currently have on my t3
    I want to end up with 20inch min inches once fitted and its going on a t3 so even a mint take-off could work

    could swap for a trueflite um 26in number 5 profile 1/8 twist 6mm barrel currently 6mmrem but could be re-chambered 6mm-06 or 240 weatherby should be a simple reem job 243etc would be a bit harder but doable if you don't mind losing a couple of inches length mint only done 400ish rounds
    currently on a rifle (tikka t3) but will take it off once I have a barrel lined up viewing welcome 45min north of Auckland

    or I could buy but would need to be a cheep price would probably prefer a swap

    I don't actually know, nothing that your gunsmith can't manage, just picking up on you wanted short and light and I have an action that would love to be 240 Wby.....
