With the Wyatt magazine for the Rem short action you can seat the bullets out alittle longer wish they had one of those out when I did my first 6RemAI on a short action.

Re: What To Expect From 6mmAI

how about a 6WSSM? the capacity is about the same as a 6mm rem and you could seat the bullets out with a short action. would take a bolt face modification and maybe a little rail altercation though.

Re: What To Expect From 6mmAI

I shoot a 6mmAI in a long action J series Savage.Wouldn't trade it for anything. It's got a 26in Kreiger barrel a SSS trigger custom recoil lug and is both pillar and glass bedded.
This gun rocks. I've been shooting 95gr Bergers in it for a varmint shilhouette competition for 2 years. At 400 meters it knocks a heavy coyote target 2 feet straight back before it can fall over. I am currently shooting Norma brass for competition loads but am thinking about switching to a necked dowm 7x57 brass. It takes a little neck turning but you can have a tight neck rifle with a factory chamber and neck it it's done right
I don't want to list loads but I will say I use Ramshot powder and a powder measure to load and really like both.
I'm getting great speed with the Ramshot powder and it burns clean. The speeds are at least 200-250fps better than a stock 243 and with the longer neck on the 6mm cartridge barrel life is a lot better than a 243 or 243 AI.
One last thought if you have any choice of actions definately use a long action for this cartridge. It gives you the ability to seat the bullets out as far as you want and still feeds great from the magazine
