Actually, I think the Remington 6mm bbls have 9 1/8" twist. I think he could shoot the 105 Amax w/no trouble. My Savage has a 9 1/4" twist and it worked.

Re: long range shooting w/.243?

Small animals such as Coyote have been killed beyond 1,000 yards with a 243 win. Especially when using a high bc bullet such as a berger, amax, or smk. I personally have shot targets accurately out to 1100 yards with my SPS Varmit.

Shooting Big game such as deer and antelope with a 243 would probably have a 750-800 yard limit, just because the bullet is not carrying much energy anymore.

I would give the 105 Amax's a try, they are a great bullet. They are accurate and easy to get to shoot out of almost any gun you put them in.

Here's my load for my 243 win:

105 AMAX
41gr H4350
CCI 250 Primer
WIN Brass
Load them just long enough to fit in your mag box, chances are they will shoot
3000 FPS

Re: long range shooting w/.243?

i have shot a lot of deer witha .243 sako, and the 85 sierra bthp. also a few with a 95 nosler partition, and the 100 grain btsp. all were pretty close though. i won a 1000 yard match with rem 700 with a a 12 twist hart barrel. the rem adl should do fine.

roninflag's rifle that won the 1000 yard match was a .243. I was there and will concede that I saw him win it. Its not as good as a BAT 6.5-284 but close.
