Hi Thomas, :)

Since the curve of a #4 Atlas turnout is 18 inch radius, I'd guess that the #6 would work for a 22 inch radius which is really close to your 23.

And I suspect that the 23" radius is really a 22" radius ...

I'm pretty sure HO track radius is reference to the CENTER of the track, midway between the rails. Hence, a 22" radius curve is about 23" radius to the outer rail.
