    My dads aunt gave me a Rem 722 in .244rem

    I've fired the gun and it shot great etc I then got the idea to put on a .308 20" barrel I had laying around. Now I'm thinking it was a mistake. I have so many calibers that I really don't have a need for either the .308 or the .244 but I'm toying with the idea putting the .244 bbl back on.

    Should I do it or not!? i hate decisions. Secondly. Will the barrel that came with the gun just screw back in perfectly? Or will a smith need to do the work?

    some nice 6mm bullets are funner, zippier, flattershooting, and less recoiling than a 308. Problem is, if that is a true 244 bbl, then the twist is proly a 1/12 twist, which limits the grainweight of you bullets up to about 85 grains. No one makes that load commercially , except for PMC , I believe. Remmmington makes a fine round, but it is a 100 grain soft point. you will need to handload for it, to get some decent accuracy. But again I am biased , I like everything better about the 6mm, than the 308.

    Actually I've had great luck getting reloads from the gun shows so ammo is not a problem. And I wouldn't mind learning to reload on this caliber. Lots of great bullet choices out there.
