A guy once said: “50 grain Vmax for goo-flinging”…. he’s still not wrong.

I think if a fella had a new lathe it would be a perfect time to fire it up. Punch it 22 creedmoor or for practice sake cut the chamber off chamber and thread it.

Grab a 243 take off set it back and rechamber to 6 creedmoor?

Or sell it buy a custom action and just order pre fit barrels.

I’ve got a similar donor, debating shooting out the barrel or pulling it and selling it. Planning for it to become a sporter weight 22 GT.

Do a GT! We need some more feedback on it

I've been carrying 50 grain vmax in my 223, mainly out of boredom. They still are impressive on most any critter I shoot out to 300 yards

95% of my shooting is under 300 yards, so the 50 Vmax has been the sole reason I haven't gotten off my ass and rebarreled my Montana 223.

I'm still shooting 75s in my 223 AI and normals, haven't tried an 88 because the fastest twist I have on them is a 1 in 8. I'm definitely digging the 88s in the 22-250 ai and creedmoor though
