So, I have a barrel certificate from the fine folks at Shilen Barrels. I am 100% unsure of what I want to get or do with it. I have a hankering from something totally different. A standard caliber, or an easy to make caliber, nothing major wildcat. Any ideas? I'm thinking something along the lines of my 308 Win Rem 700 parts build. But I don't know!

We've talked about this. You need a switch barrel for your parts build .308, and the Shilen needs to be a 1:7.7 .22-250.

Don't get one they chambered, have Tony chamber and thread.

Fast twist 22-250 or 220 Swift to shoot those cool .224 heavies. Tikka action and take that 90 gr VLD or 95 gr SMK on out past 1000 yards.

22" - 24" 1:10" 308, with a 3 position M70 type safety. Pretty handy.

.338 Norma Mag. Heavy barrel. Big brake. Go ahead and make it left handed. Anything but a Remington action.

It might be interesting with optimal twist for those long bullets you can get these days.

I have a 22 dasher that I built for 90's that I am LOVING...it's the most fun gun to shoot that I have...runs those 90's over 3k fps and burns less than 35 grains of H4350 wink....at 600y it's a full MOA flatter than my 6 dasher running 105 hybrid at almost the exact same speed.

Having said all of that...if you don't have a 6br or 6br improved you are missing out in life smile ani

I have a 220 swift and I'd take it over a 22-250 any day and twice on Sunday's.

If going bigger 22 go Creedmoor or 22-243 both will have a little more in the tank than the 22-250 and brass is no problem. 90gr 22cal bullet at 3200fps is fun

Alright, either 22-250 or 22 Creedmoor. But leaning towards the 22-250 for less powder capacity and pushing an 80 grain about 3000 fps. I can put my 223 can on it, also, and that would give an extra suppressor to use other than one my 223.

I'm in love with my 22" 1-8' 220 swift shilen barreled rifle. 80gr nosler Customs and H4831 is ridiculous. I shot a group and thought I butchered the group even though es was 9, it was probably best group of my life. I will do an ai version after this one is toast not for speed but brass flowing. It's now my prs rifle, haven't even put a round through the 6 Creedmoor that was built 2 months ago.

Buzz, the 22-250 shares the same bolt face as a 308 family of cases (243, 6.5 Creedmoor, etc), and is a short action round. You can load the long heavy bullets out long and the round still fit and feed in a normal length magazine. I'll probably put this on my Surgeon rifle as another switch barrel. I'm going with a #4, #5, or light palma contour barrel. I am thinking about 20"-21" long, plus my 223 suppressor.
