M77 Mark II Target rifle

In a 220 swift, can we rechamber and rebore the gun for a more potent deer rifle? Your thoughts.

It's possible. .243, 7mm-08 are a couple that might work. There are many others.
Lots of calibers with a rim diameter of .470-.473, case length 2.2ish.

Is it worth the time/effort and money? Probably not. I'm guessing that a new
barrel in your chosen bore diameter, screwed in and chambered will be a better
choice.

A rebarrel would be the way to achieve your goal.

E.R. Shaw offers a 4140 steel barrel threaded and chambered for your action for $175.00

Price List | E.R. Shaw Custom Barrels | E.R. Shaw Inc. | Makers of Precision Gun Barrels and the E.R. Shaw Mk. VII Custom Bolt Action Rifle.

McGowen a little more expensive

Ruger M77 Pre-Fit Barrels

Shilen also has a prefit barrel for Ruger M77

Welcome to Shilen Rifles, Inc.

Or you could go to somewhere like Gun Broker and buy a take off
