Default REM 788 rebarrel

I am looking to turn my 788 in .308 into a 7mm-08. Does anyone have a line on a good place to purchase the barrel? Also I recently heard the model 700 threads are the same as the 788 but I can't confirm this. Anyone know that too? Thanks in advance, T

The threads are different. You can have it rebarreled using any of the quality brands barrels. I have a 788 in 7mm08 and love it BUT IMO the difference is too small to bother going from .308 to 7mm08. Your local gunsmith won't have any problems rebarreling it for you. Is something wrong with the .308 barrel?

Nuttin wrong with the .308 barrel, it is just really short (18 inches I believe). And I am trying to make it more kid/wife friendly. Thanks for the reply.
