Re: Which is the best 6mm LR bullet

I like the 6-250 or 6mm international too. Before the 6x47 Lapua came out, I was planning on doing a 6mm international improved shooting 115 Dtac's but after seeing how well a 6.5x47 Lapua did this weekend at 1k, I think I'll wind up with one of those instead!

There were a couple of guys shooting variations of that in MO. Some 6.5s and some 6mms. Some of them did very well!!

Re: Which is the best 6mm LR bullet

If you only get to go two or three times a year and have to deal with whatever climatological conditions prevail. And if you let your barrel cool, I think you will be happy with the 6-284 and the heavy high BC bullets. You might email Richard Graves and see what is in the oven cooking on 243 bullets.

Thin jackets and aluminum tips might work for you. People are saying that he is putting the aluminum tips on heavy jackets which would be good for hoofed animals but perhaps not too great on a little critter.

Just how fast is the 6-284 with a 105/107?

I know the 6x47 with a 105 is 3150 and not topped out.

If you are looking for blazing speed and make a squirrel do flips then the 87 Vmax or the 95 gr berger with 9 or 10 twist. I would think that an extra 100 fps would not be worth a greatly reduced barrel life.

I think you are back in the realm of Richards 6mm Rem AI where this all started. that might be the best answer in reality.
