Nice rifle. Educate the uneducated, what is involved in rechambering a rifle, would seem like something for a machinist/gunsmith.
That 260 is getting more and more mention on different forums I look at, must be a pretty good round.
How's it compare to the 270?
How many you got left to pick up. You're gunna be ready for everything from field mice to elephants time you're through. Your guys do great work.

sid, in most cases, i think rechambering a rifle is as easy as changing the barrels... of course, the bolt face has to accept the new round and the action has to be the appropriate size (long action, short action, magnum)... i would want to pay to have it done, but i think it can be done by the DIYer if you have some gunsmithing tools/ background.

did i miss anything?

Joe is pretty much correct. Although it is a full blown gunsmith "job" to do. It requires a lathe and a ream. It is the most important job to do correctly to have an accurate rifle. Basically you remove the barrel chuck it in the lathe and ream it out to the new chambering.
