6BR Varmint Rifle, Bullet Choice Opinions
Hello all, I just had a new custom 6BR built for varmint hunting out to 600 yards. I went with a 1-8 twist barrel, and I am wondering what bullet you guys would recommend for varmint killing. I have heard the 105grn A-Max is probably my best bet for both BC and expansion. What about the 95grn or 105grn VLD Berger? how would they work for varmints. I would like to get your opinions on what bullet you guys think would work best. In the past I have used all varmint type bullets V-Max, Ballistic Tips and Blitz Kings, shot at high velocity. But after one of my hunting buddies had a 223 built to shoot the 75grn A-max and 80grn MK, I knew I needed to build something to shoot the high BC bullets too. The .22 cal, 75grn A-Max does a real good job on blowing up squirrels and Pdogs. Will the 105grn A-Max do the same, shot out of a 6BR, at let say around 2850fps? My barrel is a 1-8 twist, 28" Bartlein and it was throated to shoot the longer bullets. Any help or thoughts would be great.
