Hi, Could anyone tell me the difference between these two rifles?I see Patrick mentions the 600 in his Rambling Rifle essay.The reason I ask is the local gunshop has a Remington 660 and I wondered is this the same,better or worse than the 600.Thanks. Bruce

Same action, 600 has an 18.5" barrel, 660 has a 20" barrel. Well worth getting if the price is right. My 600 is an ultralight shooter...just needs the bolt on the other side.

Bruce--

As Kevin said the 600 has an 18" barrel, the 660 has a 20". The 600 also had a lighter barrel, with a plastic "ramp" along it's length. Both models are well worth purchasing if you run across one. What caliber have you found?

The calibre is 7mm-08 which is suitable for anything over here in New Zealand.It will be an upgrade on my heavy Brno 7x57.Bruce
