    I wish they'd only make the dam rifle in 243. Why would a they chamber a "varmint rifle" in 7mm-08 and not 243. I'm considering buying the 7mm and rebarreling to 243. I need a wouldabout light rifle. If I bout it in 22 cal would the bolt face accept a 243 if rebarrel after I shoot it out?

    While we are whining, why on earth would they (Remington) have such a crummy selection of chamberings for the Titanium? What moron makes these decisions?

    Good hunting. LB

    MOA... the .243 would use the same boltface as the .22-250, but not the .223, it's smaller...hope this helps...
