I don't see why not.

Yes, you could contact Mark at Short Action Customs about a thread protector.

you will have to re-zero, but your elevations will be the same as before.

I wouldn't be surprised if you saw some shift in POI because you are changing the harmonics on the barrel. Nonetheless, it really isn't much weight that you're removing so whatever POI shift you may see shouldn't be significant at all. Get a thread protector from one of the custom gunsmiths.
