Re: which 6mm?
I've narrowed the field to two choices. One is the Remington. The other is the CZ. The rem has a 1 in 9.25 twist. The CZ is a one in ten.
I like the feel of the CZ better. The CZ's a bit heavier, grip drops a bit lower, has checkering on the grip. All contribute to make it feel nicer to me. CZ also has the set trigger, and novelty appeal. The test target in the box with the rifle is about 5/16".
Remington has a tighter twist. Faaar more aftermarket options. If the tight twist is truly an advantage I'll buy the remington.
Basically, it boils down to the barrel twist. Unfortunately, I don't know the real world differences. My desire for the faster twist stems from an interest in long range shooting. The hornady manual says a 1 in 9 is required for the 105 a max. The sierra manual says a 1 in 8 for the 107 mk.
Difference between a 105 with a bc of .5 at 2900 versus an 87 with a bc of .4 at 3250? Don't know yet....
Ultimately, top priority is to stabilize an effective hunting bullet, for deer. What about the 95 and 100 grain bullets? Will the 1 in 10 handle them well? I read Liljas article stating the ideal is the slowest twist which will stabilize the bullet you're shooting.
Bear with me if I'm getting carried away by the barrel twist. This is new to me. The fact remington chambers thier rifles in 1 in 9.25 rather than the more widely used 1 in 10 makes me wonder why.
