Re: Best Varmit caliber and barrel twist?
Are you a reloader? For factory the 6mm remington puts a little more heat behind the bullet. How about the 6mm-06 your exsisting magazine and feed will work great. Here's an interesting quote.
The 87grn V-MAX from my 6mm-06,moving at 3520,is absolutely devastating on ground squirrels.At 100-200 yards,any squirrel within a foot of the one I shot,dies from the bone fragmets of the shot squirrel. I shot a ground squirrel at 638 yards and still blew it to pieces.I shoot sub 1/4" groups at 100 yards.
