    Anyone here recall, a bolt action Remington carbine, that had a ribbed barrel, a front sight that looked a lot like, if not the same, as the Nylon 66 .22. It also had an odd shaped bolt handle to it. I seem to remember the only cal. I ever saw it offered in was .35 rem..I'm sure its been discontinued. Thanks.

    The action is a sought after item for it's light weight. In my experience, most of these were piss poor in the accuracy department though.

    My shooting partner inherited one in .350 Rem Mag. It shoots well with handloads and is a lot of fun. Neat little rifles.

    With the one I handled,if I remember right,the rib on the barrel was plastic. That seemed kinda cheesy to me. Haven't been around any skeet guns, so I don't know if that's how its done. Just seemed cheap to me.

    we usedd to sleeve the action and made nice bench guns with the actions.

    Had one of the 660 carbines in .350 Mag. Dogleg bolt handle, laminated stock, and YES, you were going to need that rubber recoil pad. Not a long range rifle by any stretch of the imagination, but for bear, hit like a Mac truck.

    Thinking about it as a brush gun. Here in Ar.,100 yrds. is a big shot. At least where I live in AR.. Whats the difference between the 600 and 660? The only thing I see is, one has a ribbed barrel.

    My Dad's been murderin' deer with his 660 243 since 1971. It has always shot well. The same action (with different trigger mechanism) was used in the XP100 bolt action pistol the Rem sold. Worst thing about the short barrel (short of looking abit funny) was that the muzzle blast was terrific. Dad changed the barrel on his to a 22in a few years ago. Made a world of difference. I made him a new stock for it this past year...

    Pretty stock. Your a good son. Has it been re-blued? Looks like a "vault queen".

    No, it's never been blued, the previous stock and the scope show most of the years and the riding in the pick up scars. You are seeing it at its best in that pic, though.....

    Rme 600 Accuracy

    I can maintain a 6" circle at 200 yds with a 3 x 9 scope and 150 gr 308 bullet. The original ad said 3" but I have never been able to get that good.

    HK,

    Bill advised the number of rifles produced and the years of production was 1964-1967 when they were discontinued. They were a fine little rifle for their purpose and a great truck or scabbard pack gun. Not exceptional accurate (Fair) but got the job done.
