Re: 6mm-284

You can use it for what ever you want with the right bullets. I have shot tons of deer with mine rabbits, fox, crows, and yotes to. I was going to use it for my cow elk until the Grizz decide to stay out and play. Then I figured I better pack the 300win. Mine is a 27inch #6 Hart 9twist on a REM 700 LA with a HS stock. The rifle weighs about 13lbs ready to go. I use the 105 Berger for every thing.

Re: 6mm-284

The question is the twist. That is going to control what you can or cannot do with it as far as bullets.

Re: 6mm-284

If its got an 8twist barrel you got a great long range critter getter!! If its got a slow twist you got a super "RED MIST" applicator.
This old bench gun makes 750 yard prairie dogs too easy.With the 105-7 Berger's and Sierra's you don't wonder if you hit them=you know,sends them flipping [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]
Make a good stand gun for lopers or deer too!They call it a bench gun but shoots off the ground great too [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]
Barrel life is on the short side but used sparingly it will last you good long time.
