Re: barrel swap question??
a tree drop usually only damages the muzzle, and easy fix about $45 from any gunsmith.
Yes the barrels will swap. You need a gunsmith to headspace. The bolt is fine. All belted magnums have the same bolt face as the Ultra mag. Not sure what type of magazine you have. If it is a adl or an SP the new part is only about $10. The follower that feed the shell might need to be changes. The 7 mag and the 300 Rum have the same base diameter; BUT the RUM is a much fatter body than the 7 R Mag so the feed might be a problem even with the new follower and the new mag body. A good smith can open the feed rails to get it perfect. If you get the 300
Win Mag barrel it will fit with out anything except for a headspace check.
Not sure your friends father is ready for a 300 rum, it kicks substantially more than a 7mm R Mag.
No matter how many times I offer, no one every takes a shot on my 300 RUM when I offer!
