cartridge info

What cartridges will work in a M70 WSSM action?, it's 243 WSSM now. I want to keep it 6mm or maybe hot .22 for smaller deer and pests.

    Info

    You are limited to any WSSM cartridge unless you can get a replacement bolt.

    If you want to wildcat it, than you could do something like a 6.5 wssm, or the factory 25 wssm, but the 22 wssm is pretty badly overbore and will eat the barrel pretty qickely.

    + one for the 25 WSSM. ( .257 dia )

    This one is very good on deer size game and will deal with pest
    proficiently !

    It would be a strait forward re barrel job and ammo is available.

    Check out the balistics
