6mm bullets

Building a 243 WSSM, with a 1/8 twist, plan to shoot the 100gn plus bullets. Does anyone have any experience with these on game. Plan on using this gun for coues whitetail, which are very small deer. Thanks

    Try the 105 A-max it should work perfect for you.

    I think I'd give my vote the Amax as well. It will expand more reliably than the Berger. Although I am shooting the Berger now and have no intention of changing.

    dont want to get Reed and Bill ticked at me but I disagree on the 105 A-Max it is a varmint bullet at best. out of my 6-284 if they dont blow-up coming out of the muzzle they will blow-up even touching a blade of grass down range, the only VLD type of bullet that will handle wssm velocities is the Sierra 107gr MK plus they have a higher B.C.

    A Coues deer ain't much bigger than a varmint!! I didn't look @ the caliber you were using. UncleB may be onto something w/the Sierra being the only bullet that will hold together. Never know till you try!!

    I agree the SMK will be better for any kind of bone hit. The AMAX is a hell of a bullet, it does blow up easy but for a long shot it will still expand a little as I have seen. I am planning on shooting this in my Cooper 6br this fall, i will lose a little to the berger but i will gain some expansion. the slightly heavier SMK will favor your twist, but if you go after real long range varmints like pdogs I would switch to the amax and load it around 3100 fps, shouldnt blow up then

    Thanks guys. Is it the general thought that the bergers are too thin of a jacket in this caliber/weight and speed.
