Description
 
First introduced under the name “.244 Remington,” the 6mm REM was made public in 1955 by the Remington Arms Company. Remington’s Mike Walker, the original designer of the model 722 Remington Rifle, rechambered the 722 to fit the new round. The round was the result of wildcatting with the .24 caliber bullet in hopes of producing a dual-purpose hunting round.

At the same time Remington was debuting its .244 Remington, other popular cartridges, such as the .257 Roberts and .308 Winchester, were hitting the market. This caused the .244 Rem to not be as popular as they originally hoped. In addition, many shooters of the time didn’t agree with Remington’s rifling pattern in the original model 722. Originally, the Model 722 chambered in the .244 Rem had a 1 in 12-inch twist. They did this in hopes to maximize their velocity, range, and accuracy on the 90-grain big game bullet. However, after some harsh feedback, Remington switched to a 1 in 9-inch twist. From 1955 to 1962, Remington would offer four different rifles chambered in the .244. Yet, in 1962, these rifles ceased production. However, in 1963, under the new name of the “6mm REM,”, Remington rebirthed their .24 caliber wildcat with the new Model 700 bolt action. They also increased the powder offering to 100 grains. Reloaders today like the long neck and increased capacity of the 6mm REM, along with one of the widest selections of bullets available.

Each box contains 25 once fired brass shell casings. Headstamps are mixed. This is unprocessed brass sourced from commercial shooting ranges. The casings have been washed and polished, but not resized and may still contain the spent primer. It is recommended that all brass be inspected prior to being reloaded and fired.
