will a 600 action

work for a 260 AI, my 13 yo daughter wants a long range rifle and the only right hand actions I have available are a 600 and a savage 110.

Re: will a 600 action

The 600 would probably work, didn't it origionally come in 308 as an option. There were also 600 and 660s with a 6mm rem. I would suppose that it could do a 260ai with a decent col to boot. That would be one mean little compact long range rig. I think hs is making a stock for them, that is the hardest problem with the 600 and 660 actions is the lack of stocks available.

Re: will a 600 action

well can't find a stock to suit her for a 600, so reckon it'll be up for sale and try to find her a 700 action, so what works best for a 260 AI long or short 700?

You may be able to use a Remington XR-100 stock with little modification.

I may be mis-taken, but I think a Rem Model Seven stock will work also.

Re: will a 600 action

I put together a 600 for smaller folk a couple of decades ago, closer to 3 actually. I used a Brown Precision in Kevlar. They still list this available on their site. It's qualified with a comment about using a 700 trigger guard. I don't remember any particular difficulty getting it to work.
Mine is in a 6mm Remington, and I don't see a reason the 260 won't work, unless you require a longer action for seating bullets out longer.
