Plus, it's Dad's rifle. It would be the last thing I sold if I needed to.

At that point, it would only be half of Dad's rifle.

You could START reloading for a lot less than having it re-barreled.

The best way to keep your 30/221 ammo out of your .223 is to leave one of them home.

Apparently it happens fairly often, I've heard of it twice locally alone. In an AR they tend to disassemble themselves when that happens.
