Saw an interesting rifle last week. It was awarded to a Marine Sgt for winning a military 1000 yard rifle match. Odd thing is it was in .308 and the only info I could find on it was the Navy futzed around with some by glueing an insert into the chamber to reduce the chamber to .308. Anyone have any info if the military rebarreled any Garands into .308 without using a chamber insert? My info shows there's aftermarket barrels available but no rifles were rebarreled by the military to .308. The chamber insert method is the only one I can find.
The sgt's score was 449-17x and I'm guessing it was a 45 shot match.
