People re-barrel and/or re-chamber all the time to their desires. Someone was a .218Bee fan and had it re-chambered. ( the barrel itself wasn't changed most likely, just re-chambered As an original, it's value has been a bit diminished due to the modification, but if you find a .218Bee fan, it should still fetch a reasonable price if you decide to sell it. I say a good guess would be valued at between $350 and $450, ( Savage 24's have increased nicely in value). .218Bee , being a centerfire, is legal for deer, but very underpowered and should only be seriously used for deer by a proficient marksman. Also, factory ammo is quite dicey. Gonna cost some bucks to shoot it much, unless you reload
I gotta go agitate the techies!
