    probably see a minimum of a 40% greater barrel life than the .243 case if that matters much. A 6HLS will do everything you want I might add. The 6x47 is easier to bet brass for. You could also chamber a 6/250 AI off a 6mm Ackley reamer headspaced off a 22-250AI gauge, and simply use generic .243 brass (cheaper to come by). That round will drive the 105 grain amax to about 3000 fps without too much trouble. Should also see a 2000 round barrel life as well.

    6mm choice

    If you want to keep it simple, I'd go with a 6mm Remington or a 6mm Remington AI. If you want something more, I still have this stuff I'd sell 6mm-280 Rem Reamer and Dies . It does not require neck turning or fire forming.
