1. Prefer Remington 700 family, will consider others.
2. Barrel of around 20-24" max
3. Strongly prefer HS/Bell & Carlson stock or a chassis system.
4. at most 1 in 9 twist.
Please contact me by email.

Thanks.

Remington doesn't come in 9"twist...... I have a T/C Ventura predator in 22/250 22" bbl 12" twist that rifle shoots like a laser . I strongly encourage you to do an internet search for one of those rifles in .223 .

Re: WTB Bolt action in .223

My rem 700 tac is a 1:9 twist and is shooting 3/4 groups at 200 yards with barnes VG 55 grain in my handloads.

Gun is awesome for a factory gun. While mine is not actively for sale, I would consider it for the whole pachage. Sightron SIII scope, 6x2450 with mil dot and TPS rings. Pachage price would be $1700 FOB Eastern NC.

I set this up for coyote hunting, but now am going night vision on my 6x47 so I really dont need it.

Thanks for the offer Sealesniper, but I already have a scope for mine.
The reason for 1 in 9, is that I want to be able to shoot heavy bullets.

Good enough but the varmint grenades love a 1:9 and are a blast to shoot. Good luck with your search.

I am 99% sure the Remington 700 Tactical 223, 20" barrel gun is a 1 in 9 twist....
