That used to be done a good deal, and goes way back.
I have a .38-55 that started out as a .32-40.

The rebored barrel may not have ended up on the same gun. I had an old article on the practice including "I may not have the only octagon barreled Mauser, but it is probably the only one barreled with Savage High Pressure Steel."

These days, reboring is expensive and slow. A new barrel does not cost much more and is usually more available.
