Default Modern heads on a vintage drum

Hello All, Its been a while, but I am in need of some guidance. I have an aluminum bass drum from Barry that I am trying to resurrect for a drum set. It measures 23" and I was able to find 23" Remo heads however they appear to be a bit to small (even though they appear to nest perfectly in the calf heads). I could retuck the original flesh hoops but I really need modern heads to hold up to the double bass pedal. I was considering separating the metal ring of the head where Remo joined it to get it to fit the shell.I was just wondering if anyone has tried this and if it was successful or not.
thanks tom
