JD: The VLS 308 shoots well and have used match bullets for chucks. Made my longest shot with it using Speer 168gr match. Upgraded last year to a VSF in 308 which shoots great. Maybe you saw the thread about "my crappy remington"? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] Now I'm using the Wildcat 169.5gr rbbt hp and it punches holes through them.
Lerch: I agree the AI version does have some kewl factor going for it.
Thanks Sierra, good to hear from you.
Bill, what velocities can I expect using a 6mmBR with the bullets I listed above? Are they really that close to the 243?
Hornady, Nosler and the Hodgdon manuals list the 6BR as being 2 to 300fps behind the 243.
How do you hit the 3100fps mark with a 6mmBr using the 87gr Vmax? I saw this page: Varmints Loads Link
and the velocities are incredible.
Would a 3 groove or 5R barrel be better for the 243 to extend barrel life?
What type of barrel is best for the 6mmBR?
I don't have a case of magnum'itis but I hesitate to go with a shorter case than the 243. Maybe that's unfounded.
If I connect on a groundhog at 800 yards (wishful thinking...) with the 87gr Vmax or 90gr Wildcat, I want to kill it, not have it crawl off. Groundhogs are tough critters.
Can the 6mmBR feed from the magazine in a 700 action?
Sorry for all of the questions and thanks for your help everyone. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
