have a coyote lite in 22-250, has a magazine box with the spacer at the rear. of course my loads are too long for the magazine, the way i like to load them. was wondering? does anyone know if a magazine box,spring and follower for a 243, would work , with the 22-250 cartridge? wouldnt know how to modify the box i have now, only needs a slight increase in length to do it. like 20-30 thousandths. In the mean time ordered a score high single shot follower. thanks!lightbulb

I will ask my cousin he has a pretty good knowledge of Model 70 Win Coyotes. In the mean-time check out J.E. Customs post on boltface diameter as a possible referance. I dont know if the ''crimped'' sleve would hold 22-250 brass in the slot or if theyd fly out the top, or if the spring would push the bullet up to the angle it needs to feed smoothly. Ill see If my cousin knows. Good Luck:cool:
