308Nate, thanks for your info. I don't shy away from the Higher BC bullets, I just like using the lighter poly tipped bullets for varminting because they provide a better show. Also, my varmint hunting buddies and myself are only shooting out to around 600 yards right now with the bulk of the shooting being done at around 400 to 500 yards, so I can get away with using the lighter bullets. It's really hard to fnd a place to shoot squirrels in California, let alone at long range.
I know the value of the High BC bullet, and I use them when shooting past a certian range. I think the 300 Varminter posts got everyone thinking that I don't use VLD bullets, however, that is false. However, my last couple of projects have been designed around the lighter bullets, so I can see your point.
Anyhow, I really appreciate the info. I thought about a 6BR, however, I want a little more power without having to move up to a 6mmAI or 6x284. This will be a high volume shooting rifle for varminting, so I want extended barrel life. From what I can tell this cartridge seems to be the ticket.
