6mm info loads etc .

I have been given a 6mm m77 with a 6-24x50mm bushnell elite 4200 . I have been shooting this for quite a while but am looking for info on lrh as it was free and I think it shoots decent . It has the varmint barrell as well . I have been searching on this site in the background for a few months now but havent gotten my questions answered.

My uncle gave me all his reloading equipment as well 20 sets of dies brass primers etc etc . I am shooting remington brass with cci primers and varget powder with a 62 grain berger bullet . Cant find any info on berger reloading specs, And am not inpressed as I have contacted them over a dozen times this month for the info and they said they where going to get back to me and never have . GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE.


I want to hunt coyotes with this gun and so far have been succesful up to 300 yards but once past that having issues with connecting . Do I need to be going to a better combination and bigger bullet any info would be great thanks . Looking to connect out to 800 yards. Cheers Jason

Re: 6mm info loads etc .

i'm guessing your cartridge is a 6mm Rem? great round, no reason you can't connect well over 300. what kind of accuracy are you getting? any idea what twist the barrel has?

Re: 6mm info loads etc .

good question on the twist I tried to findout but to no prevail it is the stock barrell in the gun and I believe it is a 1979 or 1981 and it only has 150 rounds through it . Yes it is the 6mm rem as well . Havent had it to the range to see what it well do . As Iam new to this sport . Have been hunting for years but never any lrh. At the range how long should I wait between shots . Let the barrell gete cold before I shoot again etc. Just got back in the house and rounded up 5 coyotes and a 1 fox all around that 300 yaerds and one about 350 yards . It isnt a confidence think . It is a need to know hold over etc thing. and how to properly tune in this scope . I haveknow Idea . Going on the bushnell site to see if there is a manuel down load on there .

A little more about the load as well . I am usin 40.0gr of varget powder in this shell as well . Shure sounds nice and crisp compared to the old powder i was using . The old shells my uncle loaded sounded dead . Dont know if sound has anything to do with it but my friend said " it shure sounds better . "lol .
