    Mossberg MVP Patrol 308 re- barrel to 358 Winchester

    I'm thinking about getting a Mossberg MVP Patrol in 308 and having it rebarrelled to 358 Winchester for something different. Will use on hogs, deer etc. with a thermal on top. Any thoughts I should consider? I can get in this for about $750 total. $500 for rifle and $250 to rebarrel.
