    Anybody rebarrel an M1 to 8x57?? I have an extra M1 with a shot-out brl, .318 bore, can't hit a 6" bull at 15yds .

    Better off replacing with a 30-06 barrel. 8mm is shorter than 30-06, so rechambering wouldn't work. Now if it was 308, maybe.

    That's a neat idea, or maybe 338-06. But reboring would likely cost a bit more than replacing the barrel. If you know of any inexpensive reborers, lemme know.
