Jess has a very good reputation here in the North West and specializes in 35cal. rebore. I have a 308 Handi barrel I plan to have him rebore to 358. Gp

two years ago I found a 1926 Springfield Sporter at a local gun store. Since it had been drilled and tapped, and bolt bent, action ground,  it had no collector's value. The barrel had heavy pitting in the front, but the back had had had so many "fire lapping" rounds fired through it there was no rifling and it was badly jugged. Took the barrel out and sent it to JES, back in 10 days with .350" bore, three grooves at .358" and very smooth. Twist is 1/16 inches. No finish was lost, even the star gauge mark is left on the barrel. I am most pleased with the work, the rifle shoots very very well with SAECO 250 grain SP's.

I bought a marlin rifle in 32 special with a half magazine that looked pretty good, but had a very corroded bore. I sent the stripped barreled action to JES five days before Christmas. I received it back in three weeks as a 38-55! Took my borescope and looked at the whole bore. It was as nice as a premium match barrel that cost much more than JES charged and that I had to wait for over two months to get. As soon as I get the stock bedded I will see how it shoots. (had some health issues) in a couple weeks.......DBW

Although I also live in Oregon, within 100 miles of this company, I have never use his services but, I have talked to him at gun shows.

He does rerifling as small as 33 caliber.

I don't know if the OP misspelled the topic but, JES does re-rifling and not relining.
