    The answer's simple- send the barrel with a new reamer, but you have to consider the reamer disposable

    Nope, but the thread is bigger in diameter so can be made to fit

    Even a brand new reamer is no guarantee that the chamber will cut nicely, on the first, second or third attempt

    In the 2nd to last (i think) NZ Hunter Mag, they used a rem barrel and rechambered it to 284 Win and fitted to a T3, called it a Bush 'Super' Pig.
