Reeper:
My advice on bullet choice is shoot the one that is most accurate.

On another note, your the 6BR will reach well past 600.....6mmBR Cartridge Guide

If you shoot a 6BR and want to shoot 115s, you'll need at least a 1:7 twist, you could get away with a 1:7.5 twist.

Each gun is going to be unique and maybe 107s will work, or 105 Amax, or even 105 VLDs will work. Some 6BRs can shoot 87 and on up grains and some don't like anything under 105 g. You'll just have to experiment to find out.

Re: 6BR Varmint Rifle, Bullet Choice Opinions

If it is like the 6X47lapua which I have a 1:8 twist in my repeater and a 1:7.75 in my competition rifle. The 115's work awesome at 3050fps.

why does it stablize in the lapua so well and not in the br? Just curious
