6mm f-class caliber!!!

Hello, If you have seen any of my other posts im looking for big, giant, awesome, crowd pleasers. Well thats for a different day and a different reason. I am looking for a great f-class caliber. Ive seen what the 300 win can do out there at a grand. But i know a 6mmBR can do the same thing... I dont really want a big 30, any 308 caliber rifle is out of the question. And its all because of recoil. I know a couple guys that completely own the range the first day with a 30 caliber gun. Then get horrid scores on the next few days of the competition because of recoil... Im really looking at anything in a 6mm caliber. Please dont list anything that will burn a barrel in 1000 shots, it dont need to be fast and big! ... i have a hunting gun in 243 winchester that is light, maybe 7 pounds at the most. And she kicks soft enough to know your not shooting a 300 win mag, but hard enought to know your not shooting a 10/22... A 15 pound gun can help that a little bit But i am really considering getting a 6mmBR built, but i aint spending no 3 grand on a gun... I have a rifle scope that only cost $109.99 and it is 6-24x50mm and i can see just fine at a thousand. and she shoots just fine at a thousand... I will get a 200 dollar scope that has some insane specs though. Its an amazing scope i have seen it on a couple guns and its a BARGAIN!!! it is 10-40x63mm... Shes sweet! ill spend some 400 bucks on a manners stock and probobly another 400 bucks on a barrel. along with a 400 dollar short action savage. were only 1500 bucks in and we've built an f-class competition rifle. Any recommendation for any barrel brand, stock brand, ext. ext. will be much appriciated.

Maybe you might like to do something like I did in having my 6mm Norma BR. build. It cost me $1443 plus Vortex PST 6-24x50mm FFP MOA with a custom turret.

Re: 6mm f-class caliber!!!

I bought a Rem 700 action to make a 6mm XC, my plan was a 1:7.5 twist and 29 - 30 inch stainless barrel. I have a Holland brake on my 243 win and it is a pleasure to shoot 100's of rounds. I've owned three bigger F-1 rifles. 338 LM 30-378 Weatherby, & 7mm STW wildcat.
