    Tikka bolt, 223 to 6BR ?

    As above, can a Tikka 223 bolt be opened up to take a 6BR case ?

    Means going from taking a case of base diameter .378" out to .4728", difference of .0948".

    Sounds a lot to me. Anyone heard of or know of it being possible/not possible ?

    Cheers, Red

    Talk to Varminter on here. He is the Tilka 6BR expert. It would be on of the best rifles to build a repeater BR on. All the rest are bastards with staggered mags.

    I picked up a TRG the other day. Don't know what all the fuss is about. There are certainly better finished rifles for the price tag but, as a tool they certainly have a good reputation.

    Pretty sure they don't do a TRG in 6BR either
