    I have a friend that has a LR 243 unfired and he wants to know if he can change it to a 308 by just changing the barrel w/o any other mods?

    Same case size right?--maybe the headspace would pose a problem, butt if they screw in the barrel on the same receiver that might not be a problem. Interesting question.

    Should work just fine.

    He needs to be sure he gets the correct wrench for his AR-10. There are a few different flavors out there. Trust me, I have four AR-10 wrenches now.
