Not trying to hijack the thread but this has got me really thinking as well... I have a sporterized 8mm Mauser, and I also have a Green Mountain barrel chambered .220 swift, threaded for a Remington 700. How close are the threads between the two? Could I have the Barrel re-threaded to fit the Mauser?
Blessed be the Lord my strength which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight -Psalm 144:1, KJV, a Psalm of David
