    Just about anything in 6mm would be an excellent choice. There are just far too many choices to list and I wouldn't limit myself to 600 yds. Why not get a fast twist 6mm then you can shoot out to 1000 + yds as well as the 5-600 yd stuff?????

    you might look into a 6br fast twist. shoot the 105gr bullets about 2850fps and be accurate out to 1000yds or a little more.

    low recoil and long bbl life
