These are for my 6mm Remington, I don't know if they will help you or not.
These loads work in my gun ONLY!!! They may be hot in other guns!!!
The loads I found that worked in my gun are:
Speer 105gr Spire point flat base over 43gr IMR4350 and
80gr Rem cor-loc? (the cheap bulk bullets) over 49gr R-19
Both of these loads I stumbled on due to cheap components or stuff I had on hand and wanted practice ammo. I have great luck with the Speer bullets in everything from fox and gophers to caribou. I bought a buch of the 80gr bullets as practice ammo for my kids because it was so cheap but it was so accurate I also use it for hunting. It will hold 3/4 inch in my gun all day and about 1 1/4 inches in my daughters Rem788. Those are about as good as it gets for both guns.
Something you might want to consider is having your gun bored out to either 243AI or 6mmAI. The 6mmAI gets a big boost from the AI improvment. I was going to have it done to my gun but my barrel is too shot out to make it worth it.
Good luck with yours, it is a great cartridge.
Dead Beat, I am the lucky one. All four of my kids like hunting (2-boys 2-girls) . My youngest, she's 12 now and hunted (shot) the first time last year (2 deer), has been with me a lot since she was 4. The first time I took her out to a friend's ranch she was 4, I shot a doe real close to the car so she would have a good time and be able to see everything happening. When we got back to the house she ran in told her mom, "guess what, daddy got a deer and I got to hold the leg while daddy GUT it!" She was tickled butit didn't even compare to dad.
Sorry I got onto my kids hunting and a little off topic. Didn't mean to hijack.
