Hi, guys -
I recently bought a Weatherby .240 online. I went in with my eyes open, knowing the barrel might have been shot out, and it turns out this may be the case. Lousy groups and slightly low velocities are the symptoms.
My problem is, there are really no decentl gunsmiths within what I consider driving distance to me, and, while I'm willing to send the gun somewhere for rebarreling...I don't want to do it unless I know the barrel is bad.
It's been suggested that all it might need is a bedding. Again, I don't mind having this done, but only if I know the barrel is OK. It's kind of a catch-22. I guess what I need is someone who can diagnose the problem for me, and/or then do the necessary work. Any suggestions?
I hope this wasn't too rambling...I'd appreciate any input.
