    Default Modifying "custom" 300 Wby

    I have acquired through inheritance a 300 Wby that is build on an Enfield (according to a seemingly knowledgeable guy on the range) action with an R.W. Lathrop barrel.

    I've got a couple of other boomers and have a real hankering to turn this into a 257 Wby.

    Any recommendations (obviously including the sponsor of the forum) for a smith that might undertake this modification?

    Not particularly interested in being told that I should just go buy a new gun...if it costs too much, I'll just pass, but would like to keep and use this gun, even if in different form.

    Take your rifle to "the Kid" at wwg's. He has rebarreled several for me. He does great work.
