The amazing thing about a Blaser R8 is that you do not need to purchase an entire second rifle to create another capability. On a Blaser R8 you can change the purpose of your rifle by changing the calibre!
Every Blaser barrel comes with the appropriate magazine insert. If you are changing calibre group, you will also need another bolt head.
Over the long run, owning several barrels instead of several custom grade full rifles will make your hobby much more cost effective. Don't change the whole rifle, just use the same system, same muscle memory, same safety system, same exquisite trigger, same outstanding ergonomics, same high level of precision and outstanding accuracy.
Every Blaser barrel is match grade. Blaser have no lower quality grade.

Also the Steel used in their construction is of the highest quality and consistency meaning that there are no heat warping problems due to varying steel homogeneity found in lesser brands.
Blaser's unique 360 degree bolt locking interface and self centering bolt head provide perfect cartridge alignment to the bore resulting in better precision and accuracy.
