Re: max range of 6mmAI

WyoWhisper & xring01,

Have either of you tried Re-25 instead of the Re-22? I've been playing with the Re-22 and VLD's in my 240 WBY and finding that I didn't quite get a full case. The accuracy is great with very good consistancy, but with the Re-25, it seems that it may be possible to not only get the 3150 fps. but a full case as well. The math seems to work out, I just haven't had time to shoot any.

Any input will be appreciated.

Crispan,,

I just picked up a pound of R25 for my 300WM...

I have considered it for the 6/284,,but with is shooting so good, why mess with a good thing. I might give it a try though.

Re: max range of 6mmAI

tommy,

I sent you an e-mail with some information that I couldn't get pasted here.

Sheldon,

My 6mm Rem. is 26" and a 10 twist.
6mm Rem. AI is 28" and an 8 twist.
240 Wby. is 28" and an 8 twist.

xring01,

I understand not wanting to mess with a good thing! Finding the 1st accuracy node for a cartridge/bullet/powder is usually enough to make me stop without searching for the next one. I have since learned to go on. Since you're already at the upper limit of the range and length of the barrel, there really isn't any sense in wasting powder and bullets. I was just curious...

I need to get some Re-25 so that I can test the rest of these bullets with this barrel.

Re: max range of 6mmAI

Tommy- I too am in Caleefornia. I opt for the 6mm Remington because it is sooo comfortable to shoot. Hardly any kick and the ballistics are awesome. Currently I am shooting a Rem 700 "Long Action" chambered for 6mm Rem. The Barrel is a 26" SS Shilen with a 1/8 twist. I am shooting the Nosler 80 Grain Ballistic tips with 41.2 grains of Varget and Remington primers. The velocity is 3,386 fps @ 71 degrees, and my groups consistnatly avg less than 1/8" at 100 yards. Besides, if I need to, I can purcahse stock ammo for it. I LOVE the 6mm Remington and that damn red vapor it makes when shooting anything alive.

Re: max range of 6mmAI

I love varget and ballistic tips out of mine. I will try those bergers and RL 22 when I get a chance, but I have a 1:10 and it may not stabilize. What twist are you guys shooting? [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
