    Default converting my 260 remington

    I want to convert my 260 remington to a .338 federal. If I get it rebarreled to a .338 diameter, would i have to do any thing else? What would the cost be?

    What kind of 260 do you have? I can't for the life of me figure out why someone would want to get rid of a 260, its a great cartridge. It would be better to buy a new 338 federal instead.

    Stop! Wait! Don't do it!
    Science has a rich history of proving itself wrong.

    I honestly think if you just wait a year or so you will start to see a lot of the 338 federals floating around cheap. Then you could have both

    Truly one of the great ctgs. Why not just sell it and buy what you want. With good bullets there ain't nothing in this country I would not kill with the .260 Remington.

    The smart way, if you can afford it, would be to keep the .260 and buy another rifle.
