May be a silly question, but is there any reason that a take off bbl from a rem 700 sps in30/06 could not have the chamber end shortened and re chambered to .308 win?The chamber looks to be a little "fatter in the .308 so should be all fresh material to work with. The throat may be the only stumbling block! I would like to build a 35 whelen and need the long action , therefore I would have the spare take off bbl to be re worked and fitted to my Wichita silywet pistol that is currently a 7/08 . You know a swich bbl affair . Thanks in advance for any and all input.
