Hello All,
I read an article in Handloader about the 260 Remington by Ken Waters. In it, he said he had a 243 Win. Mod 70 Rebored to the 264 bore size. As the 260 is based on the 243 case, I'm assuming just the neck of the chamber was opened up as well.

My question is, what does something like this cost to do to a rifle barrel?

I don't own a 243 but was just wondering if this is cost effective compared to rebarreling.

Thanks

I had a .270 Ruger No. 1 re-bored to .338-06 by Dick Nichol of Ridgetop Sports, but he is deceased.  If I remember correctly, it was $125 in 1995.  I believe a new barrel was $150 - $200 plus the chambering and fit.  I thought it was economical at the time.

I just had a Rem. 788 .222 rechambered to 223 and it cost me 65.00.  The only thing the smith did was open up the chamber to 223 spec., nothing had to be done to the barrel.
