You know... . Just because I'm a country boy who's done the unimaginable thousands of times with hunnerd mile an hour tape and bailing wire.... .


I WANNA SEE PICTURES!

    How did you come to those calibers? Out of the ones you listed 6x284 would be my choice based on the performance we've seen with 6.5x284.
    Can you explain this a little more, are you saying you haven't had good luck with your 6.5x284?

    As for the topic, my son has had very good luck with his 243 out to 300yds so far.

    Savage Action in 243
    Barrel 24" Criterion Sporter with 1:7 twist
    Call Kevin Rayhill and get him to make you a stock that she can grow into and one of his recoil lugs
    Talley Lightweight Mounts

    This barrel will handle anything from the 85 grain bullets up to 115 grains. It can be loaded light now and turned into a long range killer down the road with the 115vld's. You can do all the work yourself and she can even help you some of it.

    of the 6mm my first choice the 6X47, but of the ones you mentioned the 6mm rem for the reason bullfrog mentioned the 6mm rem will feed much better tha the 6X 284
