What kind of cost for rebarrel?

I'm lookin into rebarreling a .223 to a 22-250 in a Rem 700. What all is involved? What should a "good job" cost me?

You'd probably be further ahead to sell the 223 and buy a 22-250 with the funds.

It may be impossible. The BIG problem is case head size. The 22-250 has a larger case head than the 223 requiring a different bolt and. The new bolt is probably not going to fit into your 223 action.
