CA ridgeline in 30 nosler, what would it take to rebarrel to a 300 win mag? Is it as simple as a rebarrel? Thanks!
I got this rifle on a trade, so I’m not exactly sure of round count. I’d rather just rebarrel so I can start fresh. You have any recommendations for a CF barrel and a good smith to do the work? Proof, Bartlien maybe carbonsix? ThanksYes, a rebarrel or if the barrel shoots well just have it set back and rechambered and threaded. I would think a reset of 1" would do it.
But if that barrel has over 300 or 400 rounds I would replace it as most 30 and 28 Noslers barrel are dead by 700 to 800 rounds.
I did the same thing, bolt face, mag box and everything else was fine. Just a barrel was needed. Hard to beat a good ole 300 win mag and the barrel life is way way better
I will never use another Proof Barrel in 30 cal again. We are testing Bartleins now but to soon to report. I would use a 6 groove CarbonSix in 9 twist. There are several great rifle builders that support this site. You will find their logo and info under the sponsor tab. Just click the chosen logo. I am proud to say I would use any one of them with full confidence.
