6mm-284 < King of the hill as far as i'm concerned & I love mine.
In my neck of the woods, hands down, the most popular cartridge by far is the 22-243 win with a fast twist bbl. 75-80grn V-Max @ ~3500fps is very flat shooting & is great 'yote medicine. I have a slow twist on mine as it is a rechambered 22-250. I'm playing with the 68grn Hornady Match with a BC in the .350 area. Not great I know but the velocity potential is obsurd
