I am working on building up a 35 Whelen and have a few questions. I have purchased a Remington 700 in 30-06 for the base but need to decide whether to rebore or rebarrel?
The 30-06 has a factory sporter barrel, only thing is I am not sure of is if the sporter barrel will have enough metal left. So for those of you who have or have thought about a rebore, will a sporter 30-06 barrel have enough?
Also, I have only found one place for a rebore that I feel comfortable about and that is JES in Oregon. Do any of you have any gunsmiths that you recommend.
Thanks a head of time for the help.
