    Gentlemen,i would like to have a Ruger 77 tang safety rebarreled/rechambered.I have a 22-250 that I would like to change to .308.Is this project feasible?I don't have any experience with aftermarket barrels,Douglas will do it for about 500 bucks.Any suggestions on other barrel makers?
    Thank you for any info.

    A few years ago Shilen would do it for that much. It's closer for shipping also...?
    My Ruger changed to 35 Whelen Douglas BBl. was 25' hvy taper ended up being sold...too hvy.
    My Rem 270 ADL changed to 35 Whelen 23"; smallest taper Shilen would do[#2?] was pleasant to shoot and carry. A never sell rifle.Four shots in 5/8ths at 100yrds...

    IT&D will do Douglas for about the lowest prices, if you want Douglas.

    Pac-Nor is good, too.
