6mm 107SMK

Anyone using this bullet for coyotes or deer at long range? I was going to use the 105 A-max out of my 6-284 but I start dusting them after 3200fps. I have never shot anything but paper with the sierra and I am just looking for some feed back from people who have used it on game. I would be shooting out to 600 on deer and 800 to 1000k on yotes.

I killed a pile (> 100) of deer with the 107 SMK out of a 6mm-06. I was running them a little slow trying to same some barrel but they did the trick. I had several 2-fer's using this bullet on smaller deer.

Re: 6mm 107SMK

Sounds like you have shot this bullet a lot Dave. How does the bullet seem to perform over all? By that I mean on close shots have some come apart or have most stayed together? My shots very anywhere from 100 yards to 600 yards where I hunt whitetails. I am driving them around 3300fps incase you are wondering. I really do not care if the bullet comes apart as long as it makes it inside the ribs. I actually like that better as in my experiance it seems to put whitetails down faster then a bullet that acts like a Barnes X. Also how do you think this bullet would work on yotes at long range?

Dave

What twist barrel were you using in the 6mm-06?

Have you tried the DTAC 115 grain of deer?

I started to have a 1-7 put on but Dave Wilson tallked me into just a 1-8 being as he thought bullet integrity might be a problem if they were spun too fast. From what Dakor says it sounds like Dave W was right, at least for the Amax.

Re: 6mm 107SMK

Buffalobob I have a Hart 6 groove 9 twist and it still dusts the 105 A-max up when you start getting over 3200 to 3250fps. I have shot them all the way to 3350fps but only 6 out of 10 will hit the paper at 100 yards at that speed.

Re: 6mm 107SMK

I can't say for certain how they performed but I don't recall not killing a deer with one. I know some longer range groundhogs got back into their hole after being hit but that's a different matter.

I don't remember the twist in the rifle, it was a Hart barrel and I want to say 7 twist 28".
