Remington 600 Mohawk

I think you guy's are right, around 1971 maybe '72. I've had two maybe three of them but only got serious about them when I got my 308, a 660 with a 20" barrel. If I could find one today and had the cash laying around, I'd get another 660 and get a steel floor plate, a nicer after market stock and a new 20" barrel in 260 Rem or 7mm-08. I think they pretty much call that the model 7 today! Things were better when I was young!

bolt release

I figured out how to get the bolt out.......looked for about two hours to figure out where it was. Then I gave up and googled it. Thumbs up Stock has some dings and rubs from being carried a lot. Rear fixed sight is missing. Front is intact. Nice balance and quick to the shoulder.

The best tool is what we called in the Air Force, a seven level. One of those little screwdrivers that clip's in your shirt pocket. Well hidden isn't it?

seven level

Don,

I'm probably one of the few people that get your "seven level" reference. I was a five when I got out. F-4E's and B-52G's and H's. I live by the same rules today...... if I can't fix it with a swiss army knife, I should probably call a maintenance guy to fix it. I have a whole drawer full of "tweakers". Some with magnets on the back end and some with phillips. For the bolt release I used a small allen wrench. It really only took two hands. Most of what I've read says it takes three. Of course I was sitting down so that might be cheating. Big smile

600 Mohawk

Mine was an off the self new 600-.308, it now has a Brown foam fiberglass stock with a steel 700 trigger guard. ( reversed it fits the screw line up.) With a sling and Burris 2-7 compact scope it weighs in at 7lbs loaded. I left the barrel stock with the iron sights and used Warne quick detach rings so they could be used very quickly if needed. It's my mountain Elk piece of choice when the hikes are long and high and Timber heavy. The next step is getting it bored and chambered to the new Fed .338

I have a unused NIB Ram Line Stock for the 600, if anyone is interested drop me a line. [/img]

Nice gun

180pilot,

I may be interested in the RamLine stock. The 338 Federal seems like a good round. It would be an awsome close range gun for the dark timber.

180 Pilot, welcome to the site. Nice rifle. Are you going to re-bore or re-barrel?

Rebore is most cost effective, just have to find the right shop, not many doing it.
Don't under estimate short barrel rifles into brush only guns. Short barrels are stiffer, and can deliver some awesome groups. It's a hard decision on best caliber with short barrels. It is my belief more powder can be used in the .358 Winchester, the most overlooked "great " big game cartridge, because the 250 grain bullet is shorter then the .338 250 grain. This means with the short magazine, bullet seated to same depth, you can get more powder in the .358. And more powder can completely burn in the larger diameter barrel. On the other hand, the .338 bullets have a much better BC, and selection of bullets. The ideal, would most likely be to increase the barrel length by 4 inches to 22" and chamber a .338-284 winchester wildcat, which could duplicate .338/06. I would really like to see testing done in short barrel between .338 Fed. and .358 Win. IF one is limited to factory ammo, and the .338 Fed flies with the shooting gentry, it will be the best way to go, as factory .358 Win. only has one loading now. My dream Alaska canoe gun would be the 600 in .375-.284 win. with 270 grain bullets.

I would not go to the 284 case in the mod 600. Magazine well is to short. I would go to a 20" barrel tho. With the 308 case you won't lose much but get a great handling rifle. Of course then you'd have to re-barrel rather than re-bore. My 660 was a 308 w/20" barrel and was a dream to shoot. The rifle was very accurate, probally the stiff barrel did help. I'm not a big bore fan but a 358 win in the 600 would be a nice woods rifle.

There's a guy in Pendelton, Ore that is supposed to be doing real nice work re-boring. Guy up in Wash also but the turn around time is about a year. Will see if I can find the guy's name in Pendelton.

Check your ammo measurements again,.. OAL for .284 win and .308 are identical 2.8 inches. Even though ..284 case is .155 longer. Lots of .284 mod. 600 wildcatted with this case. Remember the .350 Rem Mag.? it is 2.8" also and first came out in Mod 600. The tough thing about .284 is getting cases, and hope Rem does not stop making them. That rebated rim is hard to come by.

Already talked to Smith in Oregon thanks.
