    Buy a 224 barrel blank in your preferred twist/profile/length, rechamber, thread to fit your existing action.
    'Fine tune' headspace/chamber, set up in stock, make many load noises and holes in targets

    we are starting from scratch so either a tikka conversion or savage 1-9.
    this is for a mate as I already have the tikka varmint 1-14 but the 1-8 is my dream longe range varminter!

    I have been looking at the same thing kinda

    Best bet i can find is rebarrel something 2ndhand in the stock you want. I.e laminate stock remington with the 22/250 bolt face then chuck a fast twist barrel on it

    As the others mentioned, wrong bolt face on the .223. You need the 08 family action/bolt or even an existing 22-250 and rebarrel to the faster twist.

    Can you not open up the face of the bolt?

    you have open the bolt face put in a new extractor and ream the chamber approx $350 in machining.
    if ya buy new tikka look at doing a swap at the wholesalers for the mag and buy a gun works bolt stop for $50.
    still cheaper than a rebarreling and a varmint stock to buy unless ya can get a buggered 22-250 at the Wright price to rebarrel

    i just brought a howa action and chucked a kreiger 1:8 on it and got it chambered, was the cheapest way to do it for me. if you're getting it chambered , you might as well go 22-250 ackley , sling the 75 amax at 3300+ easily
