Kimber Montana Barrel Swap Question

I have what I believe to be an easy question for those in the know. First, the question and then the explanation. I have a Kimber Montana in 257 Roberts and wish to rebarrel it and want to know what calibers are options and what it would cost, approximately. I wish to rebarrel it in a different caliber. My intent is to buy a Kimber Montana takeoff barrel as I assume that would be the cheapest route. Yes, I know that it is possible I could be buying someone else's problem barrel. I intend to go that "cheapest route". If not, I would just sell the rifle and buy another.

Knowing I have a short action, 84M, what calibers can I switch to with this setup, changing nothing else?

Approximately, what would it cost?

Is reboring an affordable option? If so, to what calibers?

Thanks in advance.

First, welcome to the forum Bigsky.

Looks like you should have a number of barrel options for the Montana, though I can't say how available just a barrel would be. Also not sure if anything has to change in the receiver, though I suspect not.
