I found a deal on a SA Remington that I couldn`t pass up. It has been to Greg Tannel and had the complete blueprint done. Firing pin bushed, bolt body sleeved, double pinned recoil lug, superlite firing pin and spring. I already had a SA in the wings, so I put it up for sale when this gussied up one arrived. I already have nice deer rifles, and target rifles, just thought I`d ask the opinions here on what to cobble together. I`ve always wanted a 22BR and something with about a #4 taper. Fast twist, enough to shoot up to an 80 grain bullet. I`d not squabble at a 6BR either.......243AI..........260?

Ive got a 6x47 reamer, that would fit in there and be a good dual purpose round.

Many choices.

What say ye?

She`s set up as a switch barrel so that ain`t a problem.

It ain`t a solid bottom action, so a target, SERIOUS, target rifle is out of line to me.

I've been enjoying my .260 as nice deer rig. Put a 1/8 twist on it so you can shoot the heavier bullets and it'll do just about anything you ask of it. .243AI would be a nice way to go as well but I just can't replace a barrel every 1500 rnds.

On the AI front, I went with a .223AI.
