Sorry, I didn't have much time to reply earlier and expound on what I said. Yes, you can simply have a .338 caliber barrel installed on your .700 with the chamber reamed to .340 Weatherby. It should work well with maybe only minor tweaking any competent gunsmith can do after installing the new barrel.

However, if you're going to spend money on a new barrel you should consider doing more to your rifle. I'd blueprint the action and add precision ground recoil lug at a minimum and consider a new trigger. If it's in the budget I get a different stock as well depending on what you have for a factory stock.
