Re: Re-barreling a Rem 700

Here is a list of cartridges that you can rebarrel your rifle to without changing mag or boltface dimensions. Some of them are wildcats and some are commercially produced. I didn't see the 270Win listed but I am sure it is also feesible but wasn't listed because of it's minutely longer OAL.

Re: Re-barreling a Rem 700

If you are serious about building a 1000 yd shooter you could do a lot worse than the 6.5-284Norma. It has been proving itself in long range competition, at least there have been magazine articles about them. I have a Ruger 77 tang safe chambered in 25/06Rem that I am considering a rebarrel and might go with a 6.5mm. I have been considering the 6.5-284 and the 6.5-06 A-square.

Re: Re-barreling a Rem 700

I have a 280 AI that was originally a 270 win. The ballistics are within 40-50 fps of the 7mm mag with hunting weight bullets in the 145 - 150 gr. class. The rifle is a tack driver capable of 1/4 minute accuracy. Unfortunately the smith that built mine is no longer in business, he had a kick ass reamer for the 280 AI and built many fine shooting rifles.
