    whats awesome about that barrel is ,there is no taper...if you can live with the weight you can rechamber it numerous times' to combat throat wear....if you were intending to turn it down you could leave say 6" fat and do same thing.....

    I had Alan Carr run my T3 supervarmint 308 chamber out to 300wm and it was a real tack driver in both calibers!
