Re: Why is the 6mm so successful at matches?
The 6mm are good out to 600, after that you start giving up too much to the 6.5mm and the 7mm rifles. It's like everything, they are good but they can only take you so far.
You see alot of 6mm at the Midrange championship, 6BRX, Dasher, 6XC, and 6X47 Lapuas to name a few, but at the Longrange Championship there are mainly 6.5mm and 7mm. 6.5x47 Lapua, 6.5-284, 284, 284 Shehane, 7 SAUM, and one or two 7WSM's.
So as far as 6mm being more accurate I would say only out to 600 yds., after that it's necessary to burn more powder!
