244 Remington
.
The 244 Remington was introduced in 1955 for the Remington Model 722 bolt-action rifle.
Later in 1963 it was replaced with the 6mm Remington due to a change in the rifling twist from a 1 in 12 for the
244 Remington to a 1 in 9 twist for the 6mm Remington.
This was done so Remington could load bullets larger than the 90 grain used in the 244 as the 1 in 12 twist in the
244 Remington could not stabilize bullets over 90 grains in weight.
Even though the cases are the same size for the 244 Remington and 6mm Remington, they are considered two different
cartridges due to different loadings and different head-stamps.
Below are two specimens available for this obsolete 244 Remington caliber, which is no longer produced.
