I saw an old, heavy barrel target rifle for sale and it is marked .244 Remington?
Is this a wildcat cartridge?
Any info would be appreciated.

244 remington was the other name for the 6mm remington as I'm sure all those articles would tell you.

OK, so the .244 Remington is now called the 6mm Remington.
The older barrels had the slower twist for use with light bullets only.
I knew someone would know. Thanks.
