A Montucky 7" 224 Kreedmire,would be a fhuqking hoot.

Pass the 88's at 3200fps+.................(grin)

Sure would. A Barrett 22-250 7 twist was creeping onto the want list when they changed to 1:8. Now I'm not as sure.
A mini-action FC 223 with 1:7 is arriving soon - with a 2.436" COAL. Hopefully that matches a throat that likes 88's. And it actually MIGHT, since Barrett seems to get shit right most of the time.

Max COAL to the lands in a SAAMI 223 chamber with a 75 eld is around 2.430-2.435, so I would guess the Barrett mag box will necessitate jumping the 88's. Feel free to correct me if my dimensions are wrong, but I believe Barrett may have skimped on the mag box dimensions unless their reamer has a shorter freebore than standard 223. If that's the case they would still have failed IMO.

I'm hoping I'm wrong but that was my first thought when I looked at the numbers.

Exactly my worry. A 223 with 75's isn't suffering, but bullets grow a little every year. And 223/88 is like a mini 6x45. Which is appealing. If I ever get the barrel on my Montana killed I could have just what I want there, and in AI, with the new tube.

2.436" is too short for 88's...but MIGHT smooch a 75 ELD.

I shoot 88's in a 8" 224 Kreedmire happily,at low tide and frozen temps. There's enough RPM increase over a 22-250,to assure such things.

I'd not want a 22-250 and especially in a 3" box(better choices to utilize that latitude).

Forgot to hit "send" on this,early this morning.................

Too bad on the Fieldcraft. Sounds like the action is going to be sized JUST big enough, so there won't be any chance to open it up for longer COAL. If it runs with 75's I may still do it, but I doubt it.

Sure would! It'll be interesting to see how far they go on right-sizing the bolt for 223, and if there's enough meat left to open it up for larger base cartridges if they go smaller on diameter.

Are the Howa mags decent?

Me and a bud have been trying to talk each other into turning on into a 6 gren.
