I ordered a barrel for my Savage 110 in 6PPC. The barrel came with a .262 neck. My 6PPC reloads and factory rounds mic .266 on average. Not wanting to have to turn necks can I have the neck of the chamber reamed out to .270? Is .270 the standard neck dimension for the Sako 6PPC USA factory chamber or is it too large? Thanks.

6 PPC with .270 necks and Sako factory 6 PPC rifles are two frequent topics.

I would just buy neck turned brass or have a Benchrest shooter turn some necks and prep some .220 Lapua for your chamber.
Where did you get that barrel and at .262 I presume that it's a tight "Benchrest" chamber cut for which brass?
Old Sako .220 Russian or new Lapua ?
the Sako 6PPC USA factory chamber ?



Do a chamber cast and get a reamer print .

The barrel came from Sharp Shooters Supply. I plan on using the gun for varmint shooting, mostly prarie dogs, so I was trying to stay away from neck turning given the volume of cases I will be loading (1000 plus). The load is a 58gr Vmax. I did not realize that the neck was .262 until I pulled the barrel out to install it on the action. I am using Norma brass for the varmint rounds and have no problem with a Ruger 77 MK II target gun in 6PPC that uses this brass without turning. Anyway, thanks for the response and the link.
