Re: 6mm advice

I like the big bergers for the highest BC

The big 105 AMAX for long range and optimal expansion

for close range and ultimate velocity and explosion the 55gr polymer tipped bullets. I have seen one of these at over 4000fps hit a 20lb bobcat at 30 yds and not leave a exit!!!

Re: 6mm advice

Wish I woulda taken the camera with me yesterday.I pulled the trigger on my 243(aka Red Mist)loaded with a full case of H414 behind a 55gNos.The target before was a jack @40yards,after the shot[img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]Put it this way,parts of it hit us[img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img] If I'm realy on my game I see the scope turn red and parts drop back to earth when aimed at prairie dogs.
The 105gVLD Bergers have ben doing a good job of flipping prairie dogs @ 750 yards out of the 6-284,not red mist but you don't have to wonder if you hitem
I'm sure there are other bullets out there that will getterdone but these two have workt the best for me,an added plus is both guns shoot thier best groups with these bullets.

Re: 6mm advice

Ill echo those thoughts... My 243 did well with H414 and 55gr Nosler ballistic tips. Ill never forget the first thing I hit with one, a pigion. Violent does not even begin to describe what that bullet did!

Re: 6mm advice

only prob i have with the bergers is last week me and BIll went out to kill a few more 1k pdogs with his new 6-250 APS rifle. that little sucker shots like a dream!!! I thumped a small dog in the ass end at 1075 and he managed to crawl around for a while, this is to be expected though. BJ center punched one at 1070 right through the guts and the dog hit the dirt and kicked it into 5th gear. He never acted like he was hit besides his odd way of running and the obvious panic.

Last year when i hit one at 1070yds with the amax there was at least a little expansion and 3 dogs died past 1050yds that day.

i just think the poly tipped bullets promote a little more expansion with the light jacketed bergers do at extreme range.

If you are within 500yds i dont think you will ever see a difference.

Re: 6mm advice

At 300 yrds or less my vote goes for the 58gn v-max. Looks like you stuck a M-90 up their ass.
