    Fluted varmint Rem 700 223 barrel for Rem 700 300 Win mag ?

    Does anyone want to swap my blued, fluted heavy Remington 700 223 barrel for a heavy Rem 700 barrel in 300 Win Mag ?

    The 223 barrel is a take off barrel I got from one of the local shops 10 or more years ago, at the time they had an in-house gunsmith and were doing a lot of rebarrelling work. I was told it had seen little to no use. Internally it has sharp shiny rifling, throat looks fine to the naked eye. There are a few rust spots on the exterior. Length 26.1 inches or 664mm in this new-fangled Metric System. Twist by the tight-patch-on-cleaning-rod method is 1 - 12".

    Looks like it could do with recrowning, in the closeup image there is a small ding.

    This is/was intended to be my emergency reserve 220 Swift barrel but I doubt I will ever need it.

    Looking for a Rem 700 300 Win Mag barrel, possibly off one of the Long Range models, doesn't matter if it has had 200 - 300 rounds thru it. PM if interested.

    Hay mate, I have a blued 300 win mag barrel sitting here from a build I've just done. It's an older rem 700. Heavy sporter I think. Was shooting sub moa groups before i took it off. Yours for a box of beers and postage if you want it.

    I would also be interested in swapping this for a Tikka stainless T3 barrel in 7mm-08 or 300WSM, 200-300 rounds use would by OK.
