No. 1 Rebarrel?

I've really been having a fever for a rifle in 250 Savage and think the No.1 would be a classy rifle for this classic caliber. I've been looking into having an existing gun rebarreled and found a good gunsmith who has a lot of experience with rebarreling No.1 guns. For $450, that pays for all the work, the barrel, and bluing.

Question is whether I send my own 1-B .243 to be rebarreled or if I buy a used gun and send it. I bought my .243 new a few years ago and it's laser accurate with my reloads. But it's too long for my taste. Gunsmith says he will send back the original barrel and it can always be put back on down the road.

Other option is a used 1-B in 7mm Mag locally that has some wear and a cracked forend, but the guy would take $550 for it. Do I buy that one and have it rebarreled instead of my own 243 or should I leave this gun alone due to the cracked forend?

Not going away, just very limited production.

The $550 project gun seems like a good investment for your goals.

I'd buy a $550 Ruger #1 for the action and wood. Is it still available?

021 will become famous soon enough
Probably more 22-250 #1's out there than any other caliber. You could easily find one and just have it rebored to the parent cartridge if you want (since the 22-250 is just a necked down .250 Savage), saving rebarreling and bluing--not sure you would save a lot but you'd have two rifles for not much more than what you are contemplating. I have thought about doing that to one of mine but wound up with a 1A in .250 so probably won't.
