    getting a chamber recut question.

    Thinking about getting the 7mm08 chamber re-cut to 284win on my marlin XS7 when money permits what sort of cost would I be looking at to get it done. I just like the idea of having .280 performance rolled into a short action and into a rifle I already feel comfortable shooting, I don't shoot any heavier than 140 grain anyway so overall length restrictions would not be too much of an issue plus if I get back into reloading it would make the 284 cheaper to shoot in comparison to the winchester 150gr factory ammo.

    Pretty straight forward, however gunsmiths hate doing it as it involves muching around getting it to index the same as the origonal chamber...but it shouldn't cost you much to have it done.

    I think it was 120$ from memory.
    theyve gotta remove the barrel and refit it as well as the other kefuffal that goes with it
    get them to make the stamped 7mm08 face downward when they refit the barrel and restamp it as 284. Its only a little thing but it makes it so much more professional
