thanks for that no messin looks like varmint and you have made a good reason for me to go down the 6 ppc road , didnt think it was possible to change calibre using same action , thanks again
Foxshot, if I were you i would get a 6ppc sako extractor fitted to your rem 700 bolt, and fit a border 6ppc usa, barrel at 20 - 22" long.
My own rifle started life as a .223 rem VLS, I put 1000 ish rounds through it and it was still accurate untill I pulled the extractor out of the bolt face. At this point I got a sako extractor fitted and got the action blueprinted and a border 6ppc usa barrel fitted and the action pillar bedded into the vls stock.
The 6PPC is a superb round and as others have said, seeing is beleiving.
The beauty of the 6PPC USA is that you can either use Sako 6PPC loaded ammmo to get the cases, or fireform and neckturn the cases from .22 russian brass. I have used both and there is very little difference, and because you use a tight neck chamber you only need to neck size the brass with a bushed neck die, which is an absolute doddle. 30 cases would be enough to shoot a barrel out.
If you want to change calibres on the cheap, I would just get the sako extractor, a border barrel and pillar bed the action into your stock.£750ish

The extractor problem is one i,m having on a 6.5 swede, i,m having built at the moment. Because its inbetween, shall we say, you cant realistically run the standard extractor, once the bolt face has been machined out, so its either a sako extractor, or the option i went for, a custom bolt from pacific tool and gauge.

70 grain Nosler Ballistic Tips over 27 grains of Vit N133 with Fed match Primers. Bullets seated into lands till they leave a square mark on bullet.
Nice bit of kit NOMESSIN , what is your favorite load in your 6PPC?????
Brass is fire formed Lapua .220 Russian, necked up to 6mm, neck turned to .268 with bullet seated. Primer pockets and flash holes uniformed, time consuming but you only do it once.

I use a slightly stiffer load than anyone else of,29.5 grains of n133 under a 68 grain barts ultra bullet with fed 205 match primer.This leaves my 24 inch barrel at 3380fps and doesnt really lose much to the 243 win. Please be careful and work up to this load gradualy as it is safe in my rifle which is a custom action with lapua brass and is therfore able to handle a bit more pressure!

I was just wondering have you tried N130 or N120 with your 58 v-max loads? I know that when i tried the 55 b/t through mine that you could not get enough N133 in the case to get the velocity that it was capable of(accuracy was fine though) if i had stuck with those bullets i would have tried the powders i mentioned!. For me though the barts work well on either paper or vermin out to 600yds on a calm day(when the wind picks up the bigger guns come out).
