    Just as the title states. I have a BLR in 308, steel frame, that I would like to rebarrel to either 358 Win, 35-284 (I have a spare 284 mag laying around), or 35-300 WSM (just changing out the bolt head and mag). I called Browning about rebarreling to 358 Win and they said they would not do it. I know I could just buy a new one but $600 for a new one versus maybe (?) $300 for a rebarrel...........it makes better economic sense. Does anyone know of a gunsmith who has or can do this kind of job? I have searched til I am blue in the face and can't come up with an answer to this question. Thanks in advance and any reply would be greatly appreciated.

    They should be able to do it. They are local for me, but I think they do a lot out out of state work too.

    If you find a .358 takeoff barrel there, please let me know. I would like to get one as well, but I won't jump you since you asked first.
