There'd be a bit more to it than just a rebarrel I think. The .223 boltface is about .020" more than that for the Hornet. I'll talk with my smith about cartridge handling & chamber alignment issues, if any, before I go that route. But if I found an inexpensive 527 lefty that's probably the way I'd go.
Gotta admit though I'd rather find an inexpensive gun already chambered for the Hornet. Then the big decision would be to have it reamed for K-Hornet right off the bat, or shoot it first.
