Re: 6x284

Marriedman, you will still be able to satabllize the 105's and 107's with the 1-10 twist. I am going to use a 1-8.5 on my 6x284, however, I will not be able to use the smaller bullets.

Your going to love the 6x284. IMO, the 6x284 is the best overall 6mm for long range varminting . It gives you Distance, Velocity and Accuracy all wrapped into one. The 6BR is proably the most accurate and is better on your barrel. However, the 6x284 is better for long range varmint hunting.

The 1-10 twist will shoot the 87grn V-max very well. I was shooting the 87grn V-max out of my 6x284 with a 30", 1-12 twist barrel at 3750fps, it was awesome.

Just out of curiousity. What makes the 6x284 so much better for long range varmint hunting?

Re: 6x284

95 bergers would be a very good choice. the 105 amaxes will not stay together after 3200ish, and the 107 smk's are a gonna need a stiff charge to get stabilized.

Wildcat the lighter bullets will work fine. I like the 55 nbt's for splattering Pd's out of my 8 twist

Re: 6x284

I doubt the 95 Bergers will stabilize in the 1-10 twist.

Re: 6x284

Regarding your question. The 6x284 allows you to shoot the heavier bullets faster than either the 6BR, 6BRX, 6mmAI, and 243AI. The 6x284 gives you more power, for kills, at longer ranges and bucks the wind better too. The other 6mm's, I mentioned, are all awesome for varmints. They each have their + and -. I just perfer the 6x284, because it has more punch down range. However, it is harder on barrels.

Re: 6x284

Sorry but I also wanted to mention that i want to hunt whitetail dear....Most people in the area use a 243 and shoot 100 grain bullets but should i go a little under that and push it or should i go a litle heavier..Longest shot will probably be about 400 yards...New to the little guns so need some help here.
