1. Ok what should I expect to pay to re-barrel my 700 5R from .223 to .223AI. I supply the barrel? I will buy it already deeply fluted.

2. Keeping the .20" barrel, even worth it?

Buzz, you really are a piece of work.

Barrel = 325 - 375
Chamber = 250 - 350 w/crown
Muzzle break = $35 from Harrells
Thread for muzzle break and blend to barrel = 75 - 150

Yes, we've been through this all before.

Unless your 5R won't shoot, you aren't going to gain enough making that change to make it worth your while. Sell the 5r for full value, buy a donor action, and build.

Mine is 1:7.7

Spoke to Greg, at Bugholes.com about a 1:7. His take was, that would only be necessary for 90 gr Bergers (88 gr ELM-M had not been introduced yet). And if was going to run the 90's, I'd be top loading, only. He said everyone that tried 90's in a .223 A.I. went back to 80's so they could Mag (not clip) feed, and the 1:7.7 would do a fine job. He was right.

Heard of straight .223's (24") making an 80 gr go 2900 fps, and I think that's the top end. Nearly a 200 fps gain going A.I. I've also heard, in A.I. cartridges, the .223 yields the most gain in velocity.
