Re: 6mm Remington for LR antelope hunting
Two bullets I have not seen mentioned is the nosler partition and hornady sst. I have loaded for several .243 rifles that were used to shoot our larger northern white tails. The longest shot I have seen was 386 with a partition. The wound was supriseing from a small caliber at long range (243 win). The 95 gr sst is also a great deer bullet that has proven to be accurate and perform well and they sell for around $20 per 100. I have also seen the sst do a good job on coyotes, they appear to hold together and keep pelt damage down unlike some of the v max bullets. As for a v max for antelope, it will cause alot of damage if you slip one into the chest cavity. If the shot drifts who knows, the animal could go down just as hard or it could turn into a long day.
