Which vendor/gunsmith can rechamber my barrel to .223 Wylde?

Buy a RRA barrel and sell the one you have now. Probably will be cheaper and you'll get better results.

It depends on what chamber he has. If it's SAAMI, running a Wylde reamer into the current chamber will clean it up to Wylde specs in all of 15 minutes.

I was thinking it depends more on the barrel he has. You don't want to use a reamer in a chrome lined barrel, and obviously it won't work in a M16 (5.56) chambered rifle.

That's why I gave him option B. Now he has all the info (from me and you) to make a smart choice.

my question is why would you want to do it in the first place?

How about better accuracy with match grade ammo and flawless function with anything you care to feed it?
