    I am considering buying an older model 700 ADL in 6mm Remington. I do not know much about the 6mm Remington (and I can not find a lot of info on it). I was wondering if these were a short-action cartridge. My friend has a H-S precision sporter stock that he had on a .308 Win. Would this stock work with the 6mm Remington? Thanks in advance.

    One of the most accurate factory rifles I ever had was a Rem M700 Varmint Special (older wood stocked version) in 6mm Rem. It was amazing!

    (I have since built a semi-custom M700 in 6mm Rem, because I was so impressed with my first one...)

    As to the stock, yep, it will fit, and should make for a very nice package.

    BTW, first post? Welcome!

    If the barrel is marked "6mm Rem", the twist is 1:9" - if the barrel is marked .244 Rem, the twist is 1:12"
