Default 6.8 Reminton SPC Barrel

I would like to convert a bolt action rifle to chamber the 6.8 SPC.
I know that any action long enough to work with 223 remington will work with the 6.8 because the rounds are the same length.

I will most likely buy a used rifle to start the project with but my question is what model rifle would be the easiest to find a barrel for? (unless someone knows of a company making new rifles in 6.8)

Look at the other thread about the 6.8 Rem. I'd start with a .270 Rem Remington 700 and order a 6.8 Rem barrel from Krieger Barrels and have them fit their barrel to the .270 Rem receiver.

It wouldn't really be worth it though. You're talking about quite a bit of money for a rifle that uses a novelty round. The 6.8 Rem is only good out to about 300 yards.
