Hey there's nothing wrong with striving for perfection as long as one is realistic about the chances of achieving same.
You'd have a much better chance of succeeding with a 6.5 or 7mm but if 6mm is what you have then that's probably the way I'd go if you want to have any kind of barrel life. If not see if you find someone who's got a reamer for a wildcat on the 6mm - 264wm or 6mm-300wm and see just how fast you can push it. I just think that at some point pushing for max speed you will most likely lose accuracy.
Building a 7mm 1/4 MOA rifle at 600yds is a completely different animal than trying to do the same in 6mm at 1,500yds. It's just a matter of what any given bullet is capable of doing and with the BC's of the 6mm's I doubt it's possible. If you are up for the challenge though I'm sure it'll be fun to see just how close you can get.
