What is out there for 6mm/243 size bullets in a wildcat or improved round that people realy like?
Everyone knows of the 243 AI, and the 6mm-06 is an interesting cartridge to me but maybe a little large.
Is there aything comperable to a 243 AI out there? maybe something based on a 6mm round? guess I could jump up one cal. and look at the .257 pluss P or 25-06. But realy looking to stay in the 6mm size as I would like to get a 25-06 someday.
Let me know what you think
Thanks for the help
I think....that it's really hard to out 243 a 243...or a 243AI.
It's just a nicely balanced cartridge. I know alot of guys like the 6mmRem but a 243AI is a 6mmRem and it has none of the COAL issues when running long, high BC, bullets in a S/A. 243AI is about my 2nd favorite cartridge (223AI being #1) and I'm on my 2nd and planning a 3rd. All that being said, I just ran a piece of 25-06AI brass into my 243AI die and seated a 105VLD in it. The 6mm-06AI is a NICE looking cartridge but I don't know if it would be too much of a good thing,?, as the 6mm-06 is really right on par with the 240weatherby as it is. I've been considering doing a 6mm-06 just for the 115VLD, but we'll see.
I've heard good things about the 6x47 Laupa. I couldn't locate the thread I remember about this cartridge, go figure. Also check out the 6XC. Good luck.
