That reminds me........I had considered this conversion years ago but got distracted by life, kids and a tanked '08 economy. I even accumulated 300 pieces of brass and dies for the load. I wonder where I put all of that stuff. All I needed was the barrel but was told by every manufacturer that it would be years before I could get one because of the run on firearm stuff that lasted from Nov '07 to some time in 2010. I'd be interested in a range report after you do run it.
