    7mm08 reamer

    Any good bugger on here have a 7-08 reamer I could borrow or rent ? Scored a 284 Shillen barrel off tardme a while back and had a look down the spout with a borescope this week, looks like a decent option for long-range gongs, then I can chop the original barrel down to bushpig length.

    You are going to ream the 284 barrel to 7/08? I dont think that will work unless there is a heap of knox left?

    If i am reading the first post correctly I think EBF has a new shillen barrel with a 284 hole thru it rather than an actual .284 chambered barrel. But I could be wrong I have been before

    If its already 284 then SAUM or WSM would be the only options wouldnt it?

    It could be a blank unchambered .284 (7mm) calibre barrel ?

    Yea but why would you bother looking up a brand new barrel with a bore scope to decide if it is suitable?

    .284 caliber barrel, enough Knox left, will cut off the existing tang and thread outside for savage action.

    Was a 7mm RM previously, but after looking down it with a borescope it seems to have done very little work.
