Title says it all.

A buddy came by talking about his 700 needing a bolt.

I said Hell, that ought to be easy enough.

Then he said it was a 225 and I started stutterin and backin up.

Is/was there such a critter and what's the chances of finding a bolt for it?

Looks like I'm gonna have to lay hands on this rifle and see for myself what he has.

It's a little puzzling because though he's no afficianado, he's also not an idiot when it comes to guns so I'd think he could find the caliber stamped on a weapon.

It was left to him and the bolt wasn't in it when he got it.

As I recall Winchester made the .225 to use a standard bolt face dia. same as the 30-06 etc. just with a semi rimmed case. Remington never made a .225 - only Winchester model 70's

I'm kind of split on the issue.

I've never seen a 225 so that would be interesting but, if it is a 225, ammo seems like it will be an issue for him going forward.

Hooray for removing the bolt.Then losing it.

Shouldn't be too big of an issue, regardless of caliber. Just figure out which caliber (and therefore bolt face dia.) it is and get one of the many aftermarket (such as PTG) or used take off 700 bolts out there for it. Whatever it is will have to have the headspace checked and possibly adjusted. It could be a .225 Win with a custom barrel or he could have misread it.

My bet is that "223" was misread as "225".... I'd bet a cup of Starbucks on that.

I wondered that too which is why I want to see it for myself.

Agreed.

At the time, the .225 was competition for the .22-250 Remington so, since the .22-250 won the format war, it is very doubtful that the 700 would have been chambered in it.

As far as I can remember, the Model 70 and the Savage 340V are the only guns I can think of that were chambered in .225 Winchester.

A screaming cartridge, by the way.
