I'd think the 6PPC brass will size down with no problems. You'll have to measure case neck thickness after the neck down, and OAL. Make sure the case neck thickness is compatible with your rifle's chamber. Trim for correct length too.
That will be an awesome rifle.
I have a 22 BR...Love it.

Buy a hundred of SSA and see what happens, then please report back to us.. I have a 22BR and a fat-neck reamer from Kiff, the necking and trim dies came from Redding. It was kind of spendy, but I am still on the original cases and a second barrel.

Wow this is weird, you are the second guy in two days to ask about the forgotten "other" PPC. I love mine (have two of them) but if I were to start over I would look at the 6BR or the 22BR. Brass is easy to get and they shoot just as good and maybe a tad faster overall. Sorry no help on the brass - like I told the other guy I could sell you some of mine but NA!

I ordered up everything Id need , Dif. in price of the Lapua & SSA brass was a mere 9cents per case so went with Lapua for now But still plan on trying the SSA stuff. Chamber was 247 so I got a 243 Bushing for the wilson does that sound right.

How thick are the case necks going to be?
I shoot for a .002, or .0015 interference fit for the bullet in the case neck. So, the ID of the case neck would be .002, or .0015 smaller than the 244 bullet OD after neck sizing.
With new brass, I allow for a .001 spring back after neck sizing.

If the neck is 247 and the loaded cases are 245 or less, you are okay. Probably. Hope you won't have to turn necks. Ick. Phooey.
I think both my 223 and BR run 247-248 bushings, 248 fer shure with the BR.

Paperkiller: I am watching this thread closely.
I have a new in the box, unfired, Ruger 77 V/T in caliber 22 PPC and by next spring I need to have it set up and running for Colony Varminting as well.
I have the dies and lots of bullets (projectiles) but I also need brass!
I recently did a search and Cabelas had some 22 PPC brass by Norma - it cost $51.99 per 50 (fifty!!!)!
I am going to have to "bite the bullet" and send off my $104.00 and get 100 of them.
Gadzooks that price irks me - but I will have 22 PPC headstamped brass (I also have a 6mm PPC Varminter) and if the 22 PPC is anything like my two Varminters in 22 Remington Bench Rest then case life is apparently infinite?
Best of luck with your 22 PPC.
Hold into the wind
