Your favorite 6mm Remington & load??

Show us what you got in the mighty 6mm Remington. Rifles and loads!!

Ruger #1B 6mm Remington


Nosler 100 gr. Partitions & IMR4350 and H4831SC. Two loads same bullet!



Center rifle is a Remington Model 600 Centennial in 6mm Remington made in 1964. 100th anniversary of Montana Territorial Centennial & 75th year of statehood.


Ruger MKII 6mm Remington with Boyds nutmeg laminate stock that has been pillar and glass bedded. It likes 90 gr. Nosler E-tips and H100V powder at 3160 fps.


Son's first elk taken with that rifle and bullet!!



We just need Winchester to chamber their Model 70 in the 6mm Remington. It will never happen, but would it not make one sweet rifle!

Re: Your favorite 6mm Remington & load??

Although I can't help with the standard 6mm Rem. I can say that the 6mm bore diameter is probably my favorite, in our two safes you'll find:

DPMS LR-243 - .243wn
WBY Vanguard -.243win
LH Savage 110 - 6mmAI
LH Remington 700LA - 6x284

The LH Savage was originally chambered in .243win, then rechambered to .243AI before being rebarreled to 6mmAI. I'll see if I have a few pics on the home computer... stay tuned

Re: Your favorite 6mm Remington & load??

Mine is a Ruger 77 (tang safety) that was my grandpa's. I shot my first buck with it, and last weekend, my wife shot her first buck with it. She got a sad look on her face when I told her that it would have to be cleaned and put away until our sons are old enough to shoot their first bucks with it! Sorry, I don't have pictures - but it likes 100 grain partitions over RL 19. Some day, I will build a new 6mm rem for long range coyotes and pronghorn. One hell of a caliber!

Great cartridge to start the kids going hunting, and one of my all time favorites.

Newest build, still in process, is a 6mm Remmy with a 27 inch Shillen #7 straight taper in a Chote tactical stock.

For the 'yotes around here.

Don't have many good loads yet. Please keep them coming.
