Another vote for a 6x284 OR one of my personal favs, a 6mm Remington Ackley Improved. Plenty of neck length and a 40 degree shoulder to theoritically save your throat life (as much as possible, LOL).

JMHO, I have a 6mm-06 Ackley in addition to my fav. 6mm Ackley. It is basically a 240 Wby without a belt, plus a few FPS, which I personally hate belts.

Truly doubtful if you will see a huge increase of velocity with the 6-257WBY over the above calibers.

    So what twist barrel would be right for a 240 or 6-284 with 105-115 gr bullets? And what length?
    thanks

    I ran 115 vlds thru my broughton 5c with a 1-8" twist. Never had any come apart and I shot both the hunting and target jackets.

    I ran them from 3175 up to almost 3300 fps but my accuracy sweet spot was 3175. After 3200 my accuracy went to ****.

    I love my 1-7" twist three groove Lilja. It will carry my 107 gr. Matchkings to a 12x12 gong at 1000 yards all day long!!!
