Default Sav99 conversion

Just picked up a Savage 99a in .243 for a ridiculously low price. Barrel is goofed up (badly pitted) which is why I got it cheap. My plan, since everything else on the rifle is dang near mint, is to convert this to a cartridge that is the unicorn of Savage 99's, the 7mm.08. Been looking for years and the only 4 I've found were in the multiple thousands range which I absolutely will not pay for a dang 99. I personally know noone that has ever had a 99 re-barreled and have no clue which makers even make them. Anyone on here have a clue?

Pacnor used to make barrels for them. Not sure if they still do. I've seen some used ones floating around.

Might be a place to start.

if you buy the correct contour barrel blank, any smith worth his salt and get it done.
