Got one. Mine is a stainless Shilen #4 on a mid 70's Weatherby Vanguard. My first wildcat. If I had it to do over, I'd do it in 6mm/06. I used up probably half the barrel life forming cases and finding a load that would shoot.

Just my experience. Many guys have done em' and love em'.

Here's another-- mine's a short action 700 with a stainless 26" # 5 Shilen. Never could get the 87 V-Max to shoot out of it, but the 87 Horn. BTHP would do <MOA to 800 on the nice days. It has the 6-24X Burris Ball. Mil-dot on it-- which worked well, although i'd opt for the Leupold VH reticle if i did it over again 4.5-14 or 4-16 to get it a little more compact. This rig, before i retired it for specialty pistols, was my walk around late season long-range coyote rig. These days i'd opt for just the std. 6mm over the 6AI, since the gain isn't much.
