Redrill .300-.378 to .378

Redrill .300-.378 to .378
« on: November 30, 2018, 11:26:26 AM »
Has anyone tried to redrill a .300-.378 accumark barrel to .378? Does the barrel have enough diameter to do this or will it require a whole new barrel? I'm considering building an African Accumark

Welcome to the forum: if Iremember right my 378's had #3 barrels and the 30-378 probably has a #2 unless it is an accumark. Might be more practical to rebarrel.

I don't and haven't owned one but I did look around and I couldn't come up with anything. Still, it probably doesn't make a lot of sense to redrill, ream and re-rifle unless you know someone that already has everything necessary to do that. It would be cheaper just to send the action into Weatherby and have a new barrel put on it.

For Real?
Sorry... Yesterday was the last and final day for any and all complaints whatsoever.

I try to avoid temptation unless I can't resist it.

Everyone has a photographic memory.Some just don't have film.

The easiest and wisest thing to do is to have it rebarreled. 
Nothing is better than a Weatherby, big bore magnum, or a Colt.
