Re: Looking for rebarrel advice

This is an easy fix , 6x47 Lapua and here is why

1) very close to the same case size as your 22-250

2) will out run the 243 Ackley in the same length barrel,close to the 6x284

3) not overly hard on barrels , 2000+ rounds of competitive barrel life !!

4) Lapua brass in 6.5x47 , so all you have to do is run it in your FL die and
load it.

5) its inherintly accurate at very long range.

Use a barrel with a 1-7.5 twist , you can shoot bullet fromt he 55gr ballistic tips to the 115 Bergers , though you may blow the light weight bullets up trying to run them above 4000 fps. but a 75gr V-max would let you take coyotes out to 700-800yds , but the pelt may be ruined.
here is a link about this round i posted some time back about it being a good varmint round , i had built one on a M-7 remington and sold it to a fella , his E-mail to me about it is under the pics
Long range varmint caliber , 6x47 Lapua !!
