Thread: Reprofiling

  1. #1


    Gents, a couple of questions to the knowledgeable...
    Can you go from varmint to approx. heavy sporter/bull sporter?
    Do you need a reproof?
    How expensive is it? Is it worthwhile financially?
    Is there a real risk of loosing accuracy and would you ever need to touch the chamber during the process?
    I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy!
    Another 7mm08 shooter!

    You mean by removing metal on the original barrel. Yes, needs re-proofing as you are weakening the area that is under pressure.
    Change to a new barrel, yes also needs proofing.
    I would not risk turning down a factory hammer forged barrel. A button rifled barrel should be ok to turn down.

    Reprofiling is fine provided it is done carefully and slowly.~Muir
