ultimate long range coyote, medium range white tail, long range comp rig finished!

Well, it started out as a bit of a hairbrained idea to build a rifle that would do well on coyotes to 1000 or more, whitetail to about 650-700 yrds that would be easy on the shoulder, accurate enough for the occasionl competition use that would mag feed from AI mags, have good barrel life, (2500 or more) and far better ballistics than the old .308 winchester. Not asking much right? Well, after about 8 months I finally managed to land on the 6XC, the 7mm/08 came in a VERY close second! After I finally got that settled I called Broughton rifle barrels and ordered a #8 contour 1:8" twist stinless 5R barrel for a 28" finished length, called XLR Industries and placed an order for a remington 700 S/A right hand action Carbon chassis and 5 round AI mag, a Tubb precision ground recoil lug for Remington actions, a Vortex razor hd 5-20X50 scope with 1/10th mill adjustments with 10 mills per revolution and EBR-2B reticle, IOR Valdada 35mm rings and 20 moa steel base, jumped in the truck and headed to Academy of all places and picked up a remington 700 adl in 243 winchester for 379.00 which is cheaper mind you than you can pick up just an action from Brownells, (dont ask me why) and completely took it apart without having ever shot it as a 243 adl lol, most of my co-workers called me nuts for that one! once everything arived I took it all to my gunsmith and good friend Parish Davis of Great Southern Gunworks and told him to get busy! and this is the finished product... ultimate long range coyote, medium range white tail, long range comp rig finished!-dsc_0768.jpg

By the way, I'll be using berger 105 gr match bullets and swampworks 105gr bullets to start off with, the only powder I could come across was rl 17. I'll be using Norma brass and cci br2 primers, anyone got a solid idea of where I should start charge wise? I'm thinking 38 gr??

Came out great! Looking forward to your range reports. Do you have any feel for the jacket of the Swampworks bullet? I'd like to find a bullet with a lighter jacket than the 105 VLD Hunting bullet from Berger for my .243AI. Having crawl offs with it at LR 'chucks. (A-maxes have not done well in my gun.)

Haven't shot any yet, this will be my first 6mm of any kind, I'm still waiting on the swampworks bullets to show up, and my brass and dies from David tubb. It's absolutely killing me! But when I do find out I'll be sure and let you know, the swampworks bullets look promising for long range work in regards to the B.C. Anyway.

What twist barrel do you have, average velocity, and range you are having crawl offs if you don't mind me asking?

Re: ultimate long range coyote, medium range white tail, long range comp rig finished

I'm shooting them at 3160 fps and ranges past 1000 out of an eight twist 27 1/2" barrel. The Bergers pretty well pencil through that far away. I've asked Walt Berger for a 105 Varmint every year but they have too many other irons in the fire. My son has been shooting the 105 A-maxes and they open up very well. I had my gun throated for the 105 A-max but it didn't care for them. Go figure.
