CooperNV: Looks like a "winner", and you're going to like the 22BR. Mine was chambered on a Shilen 22-250, 1-12 twist, set the barrel back & re-cut the chamber with a .251" neck. Does everything I need it to do, with a longer barrel life, and smaller groups than I could get with the 22-250s' I've had over the years. When you are ready to replace brass, get some Lapua 6BR. Have a 22ppc also, but prefer the 22BR. Enjoy.

I figured on Lapua, I have a couple hundred rounds of 6mmBR Lapua brass already. I am building a 6BR, waiting on a barrel. It should be in soon. My cousin found this rifle in WY. I had to jump on it as the price was really right, paid about what the action is worth. Rolled the dice and it appears that I won this time.
I better order some more brass to have on hand.

Hi NV....one lil thing....measure the fired case head at the .200" line---make shure the new "larger" and longer..(1.560 vs 1.520) Lapua breass will go in your chamber....it looks like an "older" gun and well made....BUTTTT ...lost of the guns from that era were of the old style Remington version of BR...I am not saying that there is anything wrong with the gun....just may be differnt that what we are building to day with the new version "Lapua" brass.....chek it out ....I have shot these versions since the 70's ...they work great ...just gootta use the right brass ...Roger

Thanks, the 22BR is coming along good. I got a 40gr Blitzking load shooting very good at 4050fps, should be super explosive in G/S's. The paint job did a lot for the ascetics of a great shooting rifle.
