Re: 22-250 to 6mm cartridge conversion?

243 is a good cartridge

I think 6xc can be formed from 22-250 cases if the OP has a stockpile

barrel life is subjective

for some, barrels are consumables just like brass, powder, bullets

and... there's nothing wrong with that

Re: 22-250 to 6mm cartridge conversion?

well I will be mostly using the rifle for varmints and brench rest shooting with more BR shooting than varmint out to 800-1000yards and what a caliber than still retains some decent knock down power. Thanks for all the suggestions guys mainly I just want a bigger cartridge without modifying the gun too much I want to change to a different stock as well so if that opens up more options I would love to hear about them. Thanks

I still feel the 6 Dasher is an excellent choice. I just retired mine and installing it on a varmint rifle. It will do anything you need and is accurate, which is what you need to hit anything that far. That Berger bullet will take any varmint and will take deer out to 300 yds with this cartridge and maybe farther. Be sure to use Lapau brass and I use Varget powder about 33 gr so it's cheap to shoot. I've shot groups at 100 yds that measured in the teens or .16 or so.
