Re: looking for a flat varmint/deer caliber
I've been a big fan of the 6mmAI for many years having had several built from light weight sporters to 20+ pound bench p-dog guns. All are built on Nesika actions with Kreiger barrels and are extremely accurate and fun to shoot.
In the past couple of years, have become more and more impressed with my 2 6BR's though and have been quite amazed by the accuracy out to 800. No recoil with a brake, great selection of premium brass and bullets, very easy to load for and super long barrel life. Currently, I'm building this cartridge in a LRH configuration that will come in around 9 pounds complete with Nightforce 50mm scope. Hoping it will be my "go to" on varmints, deer and antelope.
