Re: The best of the 6mm's for Long Range

Need help; I thought I saw a post here that stated that the American Rifleman published an article about 243 win hand loads. I thought it said July 2008, but it is not in that issue. Anyone know what month it was published.
Thanks in advance.
Duane

check out the 6mm remington improved it will shoot with the .243 and not be so hard on barrels the brass has a lot longer neck than the .243 just check out the load data it can push a 75 g v-max 3700 to 3800fps with the right load and twist of barrel.

Just my 2 cents, but IMHO, I would still say the 6BR, overall, is the best 6mm one can own. It's not the fastest, however, it's the most accurate and has enough energy to kill small varmints at 1000 yards.

I dont't know if it's the best for all situations, but if you're looking for low muzzle blast. low recoil, ability to stay on target, great accuracy, quality brass, ease of loading and long barrel life it's a no brainer.

I've found it does about everything but drive a heavy for cal bullet fast.

PS the deer hate it also

Raspberry and strawberries.

6mmbr, 243.

6mmbr is efficient, its what I like best about them.

Although I shoot a 243, just cause I like to keep things simple.

Re: The best of the 6mm's for Long Range

Myself I use a 6XC with a 26" barrel on a Weatherby Mark V miniature action; which was converted from a .22 250 that's just a fantastic white tail cartridge... My other is a M70 Mac Bro A3 stock with a 30" 1-8 .243 WSSM for LR shooting’…, using Sierra’s107gr. Mk’s. This rifle is a super 1k paper puncher. Holding the cartridge at 3050 fps doesn't over work the barrel and it's superbly accurate, but if I need to step on the gas it’s got more than enough left over.
.224 Wby

Re: The best of the 6mm's for Long Range

My long range rifle is a 243 Ackley Improved. It sports a 28" 10 twist barrel and it has zero freebore. I shoot the 70 grain Sierra Blitzking @3850 for groundhogs.. I have a witnessed 1 shot kill @880 yards and several in the 4-600 yard range.. For my style of hunting this does it for me at this time... Now I'm hearing about the 6x47 Lapua which is starting to spark my interest.
My Ackley is shooting .75" groups @ 325 yards... so the accuracy is there. We'll see what the future holds. Sam
