Ackleyized 6.5mm-08

Can I build a shooter with this action and Stock in a Ackleyized 6.5mm-08...Or will this action be to short.I want it to be a repeater not a single shot....Maybe a HS drop box??

It is a remington 700 factory chambered in 6.8mm Rem SPC with a 24 inch barrel in a factory HS stock

Ackley improving a case doesen't make the OAL any longer and I'm sure that the Short action you have will work fine maybe some mods to the feed rails as I'm not to educated on that SPC case yet.
the 308 family case are all pretty effecient and ackley improving them in my oppinion realy doesen't offer enough benifit over the parrent case to warent the fireforming work envovled.
Their is a smith here that has his own desgine called a
260 Rouge , its a type of improved 260 (6.5-08) He just finished building me a 260 and I chose the 260 match chamber over the improved version just to simplify the reloading process , I can live with loosing 100 fps or so if it adds life to my barrel.
Give Nate a call or visit his web site and check out some of his work , his screen name here is 308Nate and he has a link to his site.

Not with the 6.8 SPC bolt. The bolt face's are different sizes
