ruger m77 mk 2-22-250 rechamber to 223wssm?

If you absolutely have to have a .223 WSSM, it could be done. You'll have to open up the bolt face and extractor. You'll probably not be able to get it to feed from the magazine, but you can use a Score High single shot follower or something similar. If it were mine, I would go for a 22-250 Ackley Imp or a regular Swift. You'll get the same performance, but should be able to make it a repeater and won't have to cut on the bolt face.

I totally agree with nobade... the AI version of the 22-250 is a good round with a relatively small gain in capacity. The 220 would be a better choice if power is desired.. It's extra case capacity produces a bit more velocity but with a lot less strain. Also in my limited experience the Swift seems to be easier to get to shoot well...
