My wife and I are looking into 300/600yd. open matches at a nearby range. Mainly for fun and good practice, nothing to serious. But I need to fit my wife up with a rifle. I have a remington 722 .257 ackley that I have laying around in need of a new barrel. Been kicking around the idea of using this action for her rifle. New barrel, stock, trigger, block the short magazine and just have her single load. But I cant decide on a caliber. She does not enjoy recoil and I have alot of .257 brass dies bullets. Should I just go back to this or sell the dies and chamber in ? Any of your wives, kids compete in this what do they use. Need to fix her up so I can get a new toy!
