    No detail on barrell besides caliber. Rifle has around 80 rounds ammo to go with it

    Factory ammo 100 gr
    Ttsx reloads 80 gr
    Amax 105 gr

    This suggests it ok with those loads

    Hope that’s some help ?

    244 Rem was 1:12 twist (Remington considered this a Varmint calibre - 243W 1:10 twist, handled heavier bullets better) and was dropped due to poor decisionmaking/marketing by Remington, and bad press by gun writers of the time.
    6mm Rem was later introduced with 1:9 twist barrel, to go head to head with 243W, but the damage had been done.
    Same case specifications - 244 Rem/6mm Rem cases are interchangeable.
    If I had the money (nearly there as is), I'd buy it - trouble is I'd need to find dies, bullets, etc.
    I have a very nice 8.5-25 x 50 scope just looking for a bangstick like this, and the 4-12 would look neat on my Parker Hale Safari deLuxe (oiled stock), in 308W.

    @Happy
    As far as I can translate 'Yankee-ism's", 244 Rem and 6mm Rem are exactly the same case.
    IIRC - 7x57 Mauser is the parent case for both.
